Sarah is a graduate of Grant MacEwan College with a diploma in Technical Theater Production, and has put this to good use working as a stage manager and lighting director on both theatre stages and movie sets. 10 years ago Sarah discovered her love for theatre translated to event planning nicely, and began her journey in becoming one of Edmonton's top planners. With the combination of her education, vast customer service experience, excellent production skills and her strong sense of style, Sarah has found a calling as a unique and sought after event planner.
Here’s what one client had to say about Sarah: “Sarah took the time to get to know us and listen to our ideas so she could find us the right people and the right extras to incorporate into our big day to really make it our own. Our wedding turned out to be spectacular, and we've received much praise on every aspect of it.”
