“I love planning events because no matter how much work went into it, the biggest payoff is seeing the guests enjoying themselves… that gives me butterflies!”
Olivia’s honesty and enthusiasm fuel her work. Boundless creativity and ideas continually motivate her.
Over the years, Olivia utilized her creative talents in various industries, and her experiences brought out her true passion for styling events and event planning. Olivia acquired a diploma in Event Management from the Art Institute of Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2010. While in Vancouver, Olivia had the opportunity to work on a variety of high profile events, including the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, the BMO Vancouver International Marathon, the World Education Congress and the 2010 Inside Ride Vancouver.
After finishing school, Olivia worked in event sales with Pit Stop Portables in Vancouver and Calgary, responsible for outdoor music, entertainment and sporting event sales. She then expanded her skills in the event rental industry, working with Majestic Tent & Event, which specializes in tents, rentals and transforming spaces. Back in Alberta, Olivia was one of two event planners for the Calgary Wellness Festival and co-produced Electric Vibe Fest – a 12 hour, outdoor electronic music festival, which she co-owned. Her Alberta experience also includes her work on wedding set-up and décor, with Urban Affairs in Edmonton.
Inspired to continually evolve her talents Olivia began the study of interior design. Incorporating her talents in this area has allowed Olivia to expand her services with event design and décor. Olivia is intensely passionate about events, possesses exceptional attention for detail and is committed to meeting every challenge to achieve success.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Olivia moved to Alberta in 1997. The middle child in her family, outgoing Olivia was always very social and enjoyed planning events for her work and friends – Christmas parties, baby showers, bridal showers and weddings. “I love, love,” says Olivia, who planned her own Las Vegas wedding in September, 2014.
On a personal note, Olivia loves the holiday season and the outdoors. She enjoys ripping up the hill on her snowboard, traveling to unique destinations and hiking in the great Canadian Rocky Mountains.
