I'm Lisa--operator and principal planner of Fresh Events. I am a native South Carolinian, wife to an extremely talented photographer and a self-professed 80's trivia nerd.
My event planning journey began in the early 2000's when I started planning destination vacations for friends & family. After obtaining my marketing degree, my career path led me to the planning & coordination of government and civic events. While many event planners are self-taught, I continued to further my education in the event industry by becoming formally trained in Meeting & Event Planning at the University of North Carolina, joining MPI--the largest meeting & event planning professional network in the world, and commencing course to obtain my CSEP (Certified Special Events Professional) designation.
I love events with bold and contemporary design, but I also appreciate the simplicity & elegance of traditional and tapered decor. I am THE chaos coordinator and truly believe that wedding and event planning can be done stress-free.
When I'm not planning events or furthering my education, you can certainly spot me enjoying the sand and surf on South Carolina's coast, perusing the squares of downtown Savannah, Georgia, or treasure hunting in local consignment & antique shops. I can't say "no" to 90's sitcoms, palmetto tree artwork, magnolia trees (they smell SO good!), 80's soft rock, and Sour Patch Kids candy.
