My Proudest Accomplishment

Hands-down, it is a WeddingWire Ace! However, some might say it is writing and publishing a best-selling book, going on a national book tour, and soon to accomplish a third book printing in 8 months. Others could point out that I created the first financial television and radio talks in the country, whose format is now the centerpiece for ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox.

My Favorite Pasttime

My passion remains writing ,speaking. She has resumed a lifelong passion: landscape photography of the American Est.

Why I Love My Profession

Simple: the bride, her groom, her family, her best friend! It is all about joining in on the fun of a fabulous wedding experience. From the moment, she sits down with a wedding invitation album, the magic of the moment, of the event begins. What a wonderful place to be, alongside a bride as she makes hundreds of selections and decisions for the most important day in her life. 21 years of, "Wed & Write Beautifully" bliss.
