I am a St. Louis-based wedding and event planner, with more than 15 years of experience in the special event industry. Prior to founding Simcha’s Events in 2006, I was the Director of Catering at the five-star Sofitel Chicago Water Tower in downtown Chicago. I oversaw all social and corporate events at the hotel, including more than 60 weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs a year. My hotel experience provides me with a unique perspective on clients’ event planning needs and insights to get the most value and best service from venues and vendors.

By combining creativity and attention to detail to enhance my clients’ vision, I ensure every event is filled with energy, personal touches and unforgettable memories. Leading up to and on the day of the event, my amazing industry relationships come to life. I consider myself fortunate to partner with the finest venues, the most talented musicians, florists, photographers, custom stationery designers and production companies in the region, who all share my passion for creating truly exceptional events.
