What do you do?
So many things! I am the Events Manager at the Mount Baker Theatre, as well as Secretary on the CASCADIA Women’s International Film Festival Board and Events Director. I am deeply involved in the Bellingham film scene. I also have two freelance businesses: Elfen Design, where I am a busy costume stylist, designer and fabricator for films, music videos, web series, and theater. My second freelance business brings my production and events planning skills to a more personal level. Allowing me to create memorable events for weddings, baby and bridal showers, corporations, and private clients. I am a builder of relationships. I cultivate new and existing relationship in all that I do.
My biggest accomplishment though is being the proud mother to an award winning, self aware, creative and passionate young lady. Izabella just keeps me in awe and gratitude every day. Now that she has begun to start her own journey into adulthood I am looking forward to shifting that time and energy that a parent pours on their child and investing it into my own journey.
Advice/words of wisdom that affected your life you’d like to pass on?
It took me way too long to find resolve in living my personal and professional life in my passions. Standing up for what I know will not only fill my soul with gratitude and happiness, but will also help bring others joy reminds me of why I do what I do. If you are not able to find happiness in your work and personal life then you will not be able to truly give 110%, and isn’t 110% what we all want to be able give? Do what makes you happy and never sacrifice who you, because you are worthy!
