Get to know more about this fun-loving, driven event professional.
1. She’s a social butterfly.
“I inherently love and have a passion for people. My life statement is an old cliché, but it fits: If you love what you do, it’s not a job.”
2. She’s always seeking out fresh inspiration.
“I love to read and look at wedding magazines, and I started journaling again. I love spending time chatting around a table with my industry friends—that’s when I am most inspired and get excited about what my next project should be!”
3. She’s not a sales person.
“I feel the word ‘salesperson’ is generic and has no meaning. I love connecting with people and building strong friendships and partnerships. Someone once asked what three words describe me, and my [answer was] connector, communicator and relationship builder. If this makes me a good salesperson, fabulous—but I feel like I’m so much more.”
4. She puts family first.
“My greatest passion of all is my family, and I spend a great amount of time with them either at home, on mini staycations or on a soccer field (or sometimes multiple fields on any given day). I created a hashtag for us, #celisstrong, that really describes who we are. It reminds me of how strong I am and connects me to my family, who give me strength.”
5. She’s a fro-yo fiend.
“I am not a foodie but am learning to be. My favorite foods are French fries and frozen yogurt—I love Menchie’s and take my kids there almost every Friday to start our weekend.”
