About Annie

Annie began her event planning career atop Nob Hill in San Francisco where her clientele was comprised of Fortune 500 and Silicon Valley companies   After working with Time Magazine International on their Olympic Hospitality program in Atlanta, Annie moved to San Diego and worked for Southern California’s premiere destination management company – The Meeting Manager (now 360 Destination Group) in both sales and operations.

A wish to raise her young children closer to family, prompted a move to the Lake Norman/Charlotte area.  Annie worked with Tribble Creative Group (now TCG Events) for several years just as Charlotte saw rise to great growth which brought many great event opportunities.  These included opening events at major Charlotte landmarks, including Time Warner Cable Arena, celebrating major milestones for local companies and much more.

Following her time with TCG, Annie managed events at a race shop and did marketing for a production company.

Realizing that she truly loves the planning process and managing events, Annie ventured out to support her own client base and collaborates with other event planners.   She enjoys the balance of working on events ranging from intimate retreats, meaningful awards programs and large festivals throughout the year. In the span of her career, Annie has worked with notable corporate and non-profit clients.  These include:
