Founder, Corporate Event Professional, Certified Wedding Planner & Designer
Hi! Im thrilled you have taken the time to visit our website, and are interested in learning little bit more about my professional event planning background.
On the business side of things, I have had the pleasure of designing, planning and operating high-end corporate events across the US for over 16 years, I also carry a CWP designation (Certified Wedding Planner). My passion for creativity, connecting with people and keen logistical skills, made this career path a perfect fit. I’ve spent most of my event career producing major events for Fortune 100 and 500 companies, with groups ranging in size from 50-4,000 people and I’m now bringing this experience home to the Florida Keys (and beyond!). I’ve refined my diverse event planning skill sets through the privilege of creating amazing gala events from scratch within air hangars, designing immersive theme parties, exquisite awards dinners, buying out world famous theme parks, taking over outdoor parks and creating private food truck festivals, and managing high level VIP events. Clients often approach me during events to comment that my passion for creating their events lights up my face. It’s true, I LOVE seeing the designs and hard work come together, I love the behind the scenes buzz and the excitement in the controlled chaos. Even more, I love knowing that my clients can completely relax, while I immerse myself in the ‘symphony’ of live event logistics. My job as your planner, is not only to help you design an event that meets your unique needs, one that creates a connection with each guest, but also to think of the things you haven’t thought of, to become an extension of you, and to take on the complicated organization and logistical tasks so that you can genuinely relax and enjoy your event, with true peace that everything is being well taken care of. I will always look out for your best interest, when you shine, I shine. Anyone who has worked with me in the past, would echo these sentiments.
On a personal level, I was born and raised in Panama City Beach, FL but I’ve lived in the Florida Keys since 2011; my husband was born and raised in Islamorada, and we moved back to be near family once our son was born because of my busy event travel schedule. Fast forward a few more years, our beautiful daughter was born in Key West (a true conch!), and I spent the 1st year of her life on the road managing events (with her in tow! Thank goodness for ergo carriers and free flights under 2!). The seasons of life brought me to a place where I officially decided to launch my own business here in the beautiful Florida Keys, bringing my high level professional event experience to these pristine islands we call home. Not only am I richly blessed by the opportunity to be present with my family while still doing what I’m passionate about, but I am thrilled to connect and come alongside my new clients to help them create the event of their dreams. I am honored to give you the comfort of knowing that even though you may live far away and are planning your very special event on a small island, you are in more than capable and caring hands. I can’t wait to hear more about you and what you have in mind for your event, I look forward to connecting!
She’s going to figure it out long before you, so just prepare yourself for a top of the ranks expert to lead the way on your program or event. There’s nothing that gets past Olivia, she exemplifies the gold standard in planning, design and production excellence. Working alongside Olivia reminds you how to be on your A game and if she is isn’t rubbing off on you, you’re definitely missing out. More than once I have seen her move dozens of 72″ RD tables by herself, because they weren’t just right, and the moral of that story is that making sure your event space is spatially balanced with good flow is one of her specialties. When it comes to details, forget about whatever is on your mind because she’s got you 110% covered. In over a decade of working with Olivia, I have seen her juggle challenging personalities, complex moving parts and many layers of client to planners to vendor relationships with what appears like effortless chess plays. Olivia is a ‘by the book’ kind of event planner, she absolutely never cuts corners or says ‘no one will notice’ because if something can be fixed or improved, it will be. That kind of integrity is rare and her capabilities reach far beyond her immediate surroundings of The Florida Keys.

I have had the pleasure of working with Liv on countless programs across the United States for over a decade…from small intimate gatherings, to amazingly huge events that would make most planners’ heads spin! But, no matter how simple or how many moving parts there may be, she is always super calm and she makes you feel like you and your program are the most important thing in her world at that moment! She is honest and has the highest integrity and I can always trust her with my dearest and most discerning clients.
