Making Dreams Come True

I began my career in the wedding industry in 2012, and got much more involved with the industry as a bride myself. While planning our big day, I was constantly searching for inspiration, but also for more information about the next steps.  Needless to say, I never quite found that information, which is why I decided to stay in the industry.

I have been with The Regency Venue since 2015. During this time the building has gone through many changes, we have fostered relationships with so many wonderful vendors and I was able to help design and rebrand our current venue.  My mission has been and always will be to help our clients and guests to have a wonderful event that they will remember forever while getting the best possible customer service from myself and our staff.

Turning a Vision into Reality

I graduated from North Dakota State University in 2017 with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. While attending NDSU and afterwards, I worked as an event coordinator in all types of events from weddings to corporate to large scale arena events.


Weddings have always held a special place in my heart as I love to be a small part of someone’s big day, which is why I was so excited about the opportunity to work at The Regency when we moved to Saint Cloud in September 2022. In my off time, I love traveling, spending time at the lake, and exploring our new state with my husband Isaac and our 90lb supermutt, Grizz!
