My name is Katina Ivory. I'm a very proud Chicagoan born and raised! Planning all kinds of social events and weddings is not only a passion but an outlet for me. I actually enjoy all the hard work and the adrenaline rush on the day of the event. Seeing everything come together is both inspiring and fulfilling. I got started when I planned my own engagement party and destination wedding in Puerto Rico several years ago.
In one year, my goal is to start my own wedding and event planning business and to have a website and social media platform.
At five years, I plan to be operating my business and planning weddings and events (including destination weddings) while working from my home office. In ten years or so, is to open a small venue in the Chicagoland area or surrounding suburbs that provides exquisite yet affordable options to clients.
This course was very challenging but I always love a good challenge. It allowed me to think about my business on a more serious level, ponder what services I want to offer, and contemplate how to really stand out in the industry. I look forward to embarking on this journey and meeting some wonderful new people in the process.
