Ashley


LEAD PLANNER & DESIGNER

As a kid, I wanted to be… a lawyer (funny!).

In my free time… I enjoy hanging out with my family, whether it’s day-tripping or relaxing in my PJs all day if I can!

I apply my faith and values… in all that I do. It’s important to be the same person at home that I am with a client — treating people with the respect and honor they deserve. I’m by far not perfect, but I aspire to give my best in all that I do.

I’m afraid of… snakes, sharks, and horror movies. I still can’t swim very easily in the deep end of a pool because I swear a great white shark is going to come out of a “hidden cage” and get me… Thanks, Jaws!

Favorite movie: Pride & Prejudice

Celebrity crush: Adam Levine

Something our clients may not know about me: I am a HUGE USC fan — Fight On!

Song you rock out to: ‘Girls Like You’ – Maroon 5

Amee


COORDINATION ASSISTANT

As a kid, I wanted to be… a dolphin trainer at Sea World —and a cheerleader!

I apply my faith and values… every day. I try to practice kindness, respect, courtesy, and having a positive attitude with my family and friends as well as with everyone I meet. I really love helping people and doing everything I can to help make their special day go as smoothly as possible.

Favorite movie: Back to the Future

Celebrity crush: Ryan Reynolds

Something our clients may not know about me: I was a band geek in high school and now sing with an a cappella chorus.

Allison


SOCIAL EVENTS COORDINATOR

As a kid, I wanted to be… an author. And a waitress at Ruby’s!

In my free time… I love being with my family and watching our favorite movies. I also love the beach or going anywhere that has a view of the ocean.

I apply my faith and values… in my daily life. It is my desire for my faith and values to be evident in all areas of my life and in the decisions I make. I am passionate about serving others and I make every effort to live out love, joy, kindness, and a life of thankfulness.

I’m afraid of… roller coasters, the Six Flags Magic Mountain types. I hate the feeling of big drops and I’m always convinced it’s going to fly off the track!

Favorite movie: Cinderella

Something our clients may not know about me: I enjoy going zip-lining. I know it makes no sense since I’m afraid of roller coasters, but I went on one in Maui and it was incredible!

Song you rock out to: ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ — Michael Jackson

Elise


ASSOCIATE COORDINATOR

As a kid, I wanted to be… a neurosurgeon

In my free time… I ride horses, go for runs, hangout with friends, and usually about 10000 other things.

I apply my faith and values… In everything that I do, I feel as though I put my whole heart into what I do trusting that it is always for a greater plan and to bring glory to God.

I’m afraid of… Poison Ivy/Oak —- been there done that and most definitely don’t want to go back

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

As a kid, I wanted to be… Mini Mouse (literally).

In my free time… I love to roller-blade, hike, cook, and play my guitar and sing!

I apply my faith and values… to everything in my life. My faith is extremely important to me and impacts how I make my decisions and interact with others.

I’m afraid of… heights and bees. I’m working on it 🙂

Favorite movie: Oh gosh this is so hard… probably Serendipity. I’m a sucker for a good rom com.

Celebrity crush: uhmm maybe Milo Ventimiglia

Something our clients may not know about me: I’ve been to Africa  twice, India, Honduras, and Bacalar Mexico.. I am grateful for these experiences as I’ve gotten to see different cultures from around the world.
