About Us

Statice Events is to event planning, as a gardener is to gardening. Once our client plants the seed; vision for their event, we do the rest. We add essential elements, style, and sophistication to make their idea flourish into a successful event. Working off of our client’s vision, we aim to take their special event to an elite level, by infusing our own expertise with their desires.

CEO - Event Planner


Event planning began as just a hobby for me, eventually blooming into a life-long passion. One would wonder why it took me until after I graduated with a M.S. in Childhood Education and some time teaching to figure this out. The process of planning an event gives me excitement like no other, so much that I was crowned the “go to girl” for planning special events amongst, my family, friends, and collegiate organizations.

My innate ability for organization and attention to detail ensures the production of a flawless event that my clients’ and their guests are sure to enjoy! No task is too small and no vision is too grand to execute my client’s event. I enjoy using my creativity and resourcefulness to think outside the box and bring the “WOW” factor.

In my spare time apart from Statice Events, I enjoy traveling (for business and fun), cooking, restaurant hopping, and of course shopping! Recently I discovered my love for florals, leading me to take an apprenticeship with Makini Regal Designs, learning the skills necessary to create beautiful centerpieces that capture guests’ attention at events. Visit the gallery to view some floral centerpieces created by yours truly. I also dedicate my time giving back to the community through mentoring, public speaking, and service projects in New York City and North Carolina.

Words don’t express how grateful and blessed I am to be living my dream. As the saying goes, “Work isn’t work when you’re doing what you love.” Not to mention with every new event, I have the opportunity of meeting new people and becoming a part of their lives for a moment. So hopefully, Statice Events is what you’ve been searching for because I’d love to meet you!
