We Are Experience Makers.
Owner & Lead Planner
My passion for planning parties goes back as long as I can remember. My mother was a natural hostess and growing up by her side I learned the essentials of throwing the perfect party!
The passion became professional in 2006 while working at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears) as the Event/Game Day Assistant. After moving back to my hometown, Columbia, and graduating from Columbia College I gained experience working for Learfield Sports and Inside Columbia magazine.
In 2010 the dream to work for myself and create something new grew stronger, I started AnnaBelle Events. Now, over six years later, I am thankful each day for our clients and each event/wedding we get to plan.
In 2016 I completed the Gay Wedding Institute Certification Course to better serve the LGBT wedding market. AnnaBelle Events proudly welcomes all couples as our clients.
In 2017 I got the entrepreneurial bug again and launched a second business, Jubilee Planning Studio. Jubilee is Columbia's one stop shop for everyone planning events and weddings. The collaborative workshop is also where the AnnaBelle Events offices are located.
Aside from "always working", I love being involved in the community. I am the Marketing Chair & a Board Member of the Community Foundation of Central Missouri, Founding Member of THRIVE, and an active Chamber of Commerce Ambassador.
