My Story

My love affair with events began over 30 years ago when I couldn't get enough of Bridal Magazines. Not because I was planning my own wedding, but because I was captivated by the idea of orchestrating unforgettable gatherings.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in International Business Management from a university in Hawaii, where I learned the essence of hospitality. My journey into event management started there, overseeing the University's performing arts schedule. Fast forward two decades, and I've honed my skills, leveraging my business background to create efficient systems for my team and clients.

After college, I settled in Tiburon, CA, where I found joy in crafting themed birthday parties for kids. Today, my portfolio spans weddings, milestone birthdays, corporate events, celebrations of life and more, all tailored to reflect my clients' personalities and passions.

Ready to transform your event into a masterpiece of modern elegance? GGSE is primed and ready.  Reach out today, and let's embark on this journey together. I'm excited to meet you and collaborate on creating stress-free, magical memories together. Let's chat and turn your vision into reality!
