Wanna know a secret?

Planning a meeting or event doesn't have to be stressful - if you know what you're doing, or have someone on your side who does.

Sometimes the best use of your time and money isn’t to plan an event yourself, but hire someone to do part of it or all of it for you.

It’s all about ROI.

An event isn’t just the live experience that your guests show up to enjoy for a few hours or days. It’s months of managing expectations, countless details, and possibly the company’s reputation.

Some people were made for it, some people learn to love it, and some people need to outsource it.

Hi! I'm Kathleen.

And I was made for event planning.

Years back, when I worked in a marketing department, I was thrown into event planning because no one else at the company owned it, and it needed to be done. Luckily, I found out that I thrived in those details and really enjoyed creating beautiful experiences for others. I probably got this from my mom, Violet, who the company is named after. She had a knack for making people feel welcome and celebrated, and though never a professional event planner, she was certainly no amateur.

For over 20 years, I wore both event planning and marketing hats, first at an ad agency, then at a tech startup, and finally at a division of a Fortune 50 company. During that time, I planned everything from small, executive retreats to awards dinners to golf tournaments to national events to international trade shows. I learned hard lessons, refined my process, and found out just how much I loved this business.

Unfortunately, not everyone who gets tossed into the deep end of event planning has the same story. For many employees, it becomes a huge source of stress, and takes them away from the work they were hired to do, or from where they best contribute to the company.

So, in 2014, I left my corporate career to become the partner so many in-house departments need. I can seamlessly integrate into your event planning team, or I can take the entire thing off your hands. You decide.
