I can talk to a brick wall.... and love the chance to talk with creatives!
I've traveled the world to speak with Wedding Pros, and can't downplay the joy I get from connecting with you! My talks usually revolve around:
✨ Setting up a legally legit wedding and event business
✨ Drafting strong, enforceable contracts
✨ Dealing with crazy clients

wedding & Event business.
Interested in me? You're going to make a girl blush!
I'm a hard ass worker, a boss lady, and a proud member of the crazy-dog-mom club. I'm an attorney, a former collegiate cheerleader, and proud Richmond, Virginia transplant. Lactose intolerant but I eat cheese anyway because #priorities. I'm also a huge fan of small businesses, a podcast host, and a small business owner myself!
When I'm not filing trademarks, drafting contracts, resolving disputes, or pounding out business deals, you can find me teaching legal seminars to business owners or lecturing on working with creatives to other attorneys. I've given seminars at conferences for organizations like Wedding Wire, NACE, WIPA, The Rising Tide Society, and Destination Wedding Planning Conference. I've been lucky enough to work with wedding pros spanning from new baby businesses to internationally renowned luxury event planners.
Whether it's through an in-person speaking event, a one-on-one breakdown session, or through one of my resources, I hope you sense my excitement for your wedding and event business. You're a business owner, which is a huge accomplishment in itself! Now let me teach you about protecting your hard work.
