Do you think it prepared you for being an entrepreneur?
Yes because I saw how much time and effort I put in to make a spectacular event for my family and friends. Most people would dread such a feat, but I enjoyed it. I loved going above and beyond to make the celebrations memorable.
Favorite events you’ve worked on?
One of my favorite nights was setting up for Katy Moms’ Network Night Out!!! However, all the events I have been a part of have given me great satisfaction. I feel fortunate in meeting many local people who trust us in creating a perfect ambience for their guests, and who have enjoyed partying with style as we are known do at Unique Urban Events.
