Planning parties has been a passion of mine from day one. Growing up, my birthdays were swimming parties and sleepovers with relays, scavenger hunts and piñatas. As I got more experienced my parties got more creative. A favorite was our All-American Martini BBQ, created when my roommate and I couldn’t decide between BBQ and martinis! The best part of throwing a party is creating a fun and unique theme that gets your friends together.
As a high school scholastic All-American and Division 1 swimmer at USC, I rarely had free time. Nonetheless, eating healthy was a necessity so my passion for cooking and eating well thrived. Being a die hard Trojan, I graduated from USC twice – with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship and an MBA. Fight on! In 2007, I started working for a top ranked young women’s fashion and beauty magazine in NYC and have been enjoying growing my creativity and love for fashion. I got married in 2009 to the love of my life, Matt, who inspires me everyday to live my life to its fullest. Most recently in July 2012, we welcomed our son Andrew into our lives.
Maintaining a busy schedule, like most New Yorkers, I continue to make time to host fun-themed parties and try new recipes.
