What inspired you to launch your own business?

I have always been an avid and resourceful planner. The calling was bestowed upon me by my mother as I watched her each year plan detailed themed birthday parties for myself and three siblings all with birthdays nested in each of the four seasons. I enjoyed coming up with ideas, decorating, and seeing it all unfold on event day. As I grew older, event planning was just an insentient hobby that followed me everywhere. As an undergrad member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc, I assisted in planning numerous parties, fundraisers, service events, and baby showers. As an active member of the Army National Guard and now a graduate member of my local Zeta Phi Beta chapter, I have successfully led the event planning and execution of countless conferences, meetings, social outings, team building functions, and formal galas. Fast-forwarding to the more recent future, in 2017 I founded my own business with the intent of taking my experience and expertise to the world. I am a mother to 3 gorgeous children, 1 girl and 2 boys. My husband and I both have served on active duty in the Army National Guard for more than 17 years. I hold a BA from Western Michigan University in 2006, an MSA from Central Michigan University in 2009, and have recently earned my Ph.D. in Business Management from Capella University in 2019. With a pedigree like mine and serving our great country in uniform, I must take a lot of Pride in all that I do.

"Keshia is absolutely amazing!!! She was so knowledgeable and definitely helped create a vision for my daughters Sweet 16!!! More than professional and reliable!!!!! I would give her more than 5 stars if I could as she was so willing to help and take on all of the small details that come into planning an event!!! I don't know what we would have done without her! She made everything so easy and took all of the stress off of planning such an important event!" - Heather P - Fredericksburg, VA
