ASHLEY, EVENT MANAGER + COORDINATOR
Hello, Hello! I’m Ashley and I want to take you on a journey of my life and how I got where I am today! In life, finding a passion isn’t always easy and narrowing down a profession is just as tough. When you’re able to bring both of those together, it is truly is a blessing. For a long time I never knew what career path I wanted to go down, but I never gave up!
One of my first big-girl accomplishments was receiving my Bachelors degree in Business Administration at Sacred Heart University in 2013. While in school my professional journey started by working in the Financial Aid Office at Sacred Heart for all four of those years. I was involved in my friends Political and International Studies Club and partook in Intramural Volleyball. I wasn't sure as of yet which direction I wanted to take when it came to my career choices so I thought business would be broad enough for me to explore many options. Being in an office environment is always home to me. I enjoy planning out my monthly duties and making my desk organized yet chic. I always knew wherever I ended up there would be a desk and a chair and I was happy with that; it was my comfort level and my strong suit all in one! Once my senior year rolled around, I was fortunate enough to know someone who could possibly face me in that direction. Success struck and that year I started interning for Double G Events.
Upon graduating from Sacred Heart, I started working full-time for Double G Events as a Planning Assistant and learned all the ins and outs of the wedding and event world finally realizing that I had a knack and love for event planning. I am a creative, unique and bubbly individual and Maggie’s right hand woman and numero-uno lady! I took on the position of being Boss Lady Event Manager in 2014 and am growing and furthering my career in the events industry.
I truly enjoy the organization and preparation aspect of event planning, especially for weddings. I love being able to take our client's ideas and bring them to life while still having that element of surprise and wow factor! I have an immense passion for centering all of my energy and time to allow every couple to have their dream wedding come true! I am a lover at heart and forever the hopeful romantic. My devotion for all things authentic and beautiful really allow me to shine in the wedding industry and my life! One of my absolute favorite quotes is, “If I had my life to do over again…. I’d find you sooner so I could love you longer.” This quote was an inspiration/gift from my cute-sicle boy-toy that will stick with me forevermore!
When I’m not busy planning weddings, I enjoy playing sports, pigging out, going to the beach, perfecting my photography skills, surrounding myself with family and friends, traveling with my love, indulging in poetry and more! I have been by Maggie's side since 2012 and have seen the company succeed and grow just as much as I have in the industry.
Where you could find me currently, if you look really hard, is in Connecticut with my loving and big family and awesome boyfriend!
