It's been a crazy couple weeks, but it's official and I'm SO excited to share the news! I'll be stepping in as the new Executive Director and Event Producer for a non-profit organization called MARS, which focuses on finding new ways to protect ourselves online while also educating and supporting the community. In a male dominated industry, I'm ready to get to work!⠀ ⠀ I love planning events, and it will always be a core part of what I do. But when I left my non-profit role a couple years back, I felt like a piece of me was missing. Not anymore! I'm excited to dive back into governance and help facilitate growth.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vancouverchangemaker #vancouvercharity #givingback #communitybuilding #vancouvertech #startwithwhy #theartofslowliving #livemoremagic #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #doitfortheprocess #communityovercompetition #postitfortheaesthetic #creativepreneur #risingtide #dontquityourdaydream #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #eventproducer #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan⠀ at Vancouver, British Columbia

Brainstorm and check-in session today with one of my favourite humans, talking about all things Living Room Series. We’ve got an event coming up in September on the topic of invisible illness that I am SO excited about. And even more fun things in the pipeline! .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #livingroomseries #yvrlrs #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #conversationseries #jointheconversation #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

2 months later and I'm hard core missing working with this team.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Planning their fundraising gala was an immense privilege. The work they do is second to none, and that came through so strongly when I think about the community of supporters that were in the room.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If you haven't heard of the organization, please go check them out. They are doing outstanding work when it comes to fighting for civil liberties and human rights. ⠀ Big thanks to @kettnercreative for providing these awesome branding elements. 📸 @thisisitstudios ⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #bccla #bccivilliberties #libertyawardsgala #LAG2018 #charityfundraiser #charitygala #fundraisinggala #civilliberties #humanrights #butlerdiditcatering #danggoodphotobooth #clearwatereventsvan #giveback #givingback #vancouvercharity #charitableimpact #nonprofit #community #vancouvercommunity #changemaker #vancouverchangemaker #dogood #lifeworthliving #spreadthelove #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur at Vancouver, British Columbia

The calm before the storm... ⠀ ⠀ We had the privilege of planning the Western Canada Young Entrepreneur Showcase. It brought together 400+ students to pitch their business ideas, parents, educators, and honoured guests. It was a massive celebration of youth innovation.⠀ ⠀ If these youth are a glimpse into our future, we're going to be more than all right.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #tbt #wcyes #canadianinnovation #canadianinnovationweek #likeanentrepreneur #youthinnovation #yellcanada #girlboss #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #eventplannerlife #vancouvereventprofessional #eventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at Vancouver Convention Centre

Happy Friday friends! I thought I would take a minute and share three things you might not know about me since we’re a little new around here 😊⠀ ⠀ 1⃣My most embarrassing moment as a kid was when I was taken to hospital after trying to be all fancy on a diving board. Gotta ask me in person if you want the full story! 😂 ⠀ 2⃣I truly love what I do. One of my absolute favourite moments has to be when my clients see a fully decorated space for the first time. The way their faces light up is priceless!⠀ 3⃣Most people would describe as outgoing, but my dearest friends would also add in loud. I can't help that my voice is a few decibels more than others😉⠀ ⠀ How would your friends describe you? I'd love to get to know you a little better!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #fridayintroductions #friyay #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

When we were initially trying to come up with a concept for this year's gala, we decided on something West Coast inspired. But... To accompany that, we wanted to ensure that their branding was well showcased too. ⠀ ⠀ For each gala, they do a fun play on raffle mystery boxes. This year we wanted to make it even more interactive so we tried to incorporate the birds in their branding. We did this with gold coloured origami cranes, where inside was whatever prize they got. So much fun watching everyone unwrap their crane at the end of the program! 📸 @thisisitstudios . . . . . . . . . . #bccla #libertyawardsgala #givingback #vancouvercharity #yvrcharity #charitygala #charityfundraiser #fundraisinggala #vancouverchangemaker #vancouverevents #yvrevents #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouvereventmanager #vancouvereventproducer #eventplannerlife #vancitybusinessbabe #bossbabe #girlboss #clearwatereventsvan

Last week, we had the opportunity to take a full tour of the function spaces at the Sheraton Wall Vancouver. Must admit, incredibly impressed.⠀ ⠀ The spaces are incredibly versatile, have really good capacities, and offer a ton of natural light (all together, a rarity in this city!) And the cherry on top is their team. Their team is awesome, and we are big fans!⠀ ⠀ PS. They recently launched a brand spanking new penthouse space that has 360 degree views of the city. It is absolutely freaking bonkers. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #notanad #sheratonhotel #sheratonvancouver #sheratonvancouverwallcenter #vancouvervenue #vancouvereventspace #vancouvereventvenue #vancouverhotel #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel

A sweet little message showed up in my inbox today telling me I had been nominated for 20 on the rise - an amazing new initiative brought to life by @honeybook, @risingtidesociety, @gustohq, and @peerspace. It was made to celebrate individuals who are making waves and raising the tide in their respective creative industries.⠀ ⠀ When I started Clearwater a little over 18 months ago, I knew I wanted to use this business as my platform to give back and create community. I wanted to be able to choose the projects I took on, and the organizations that I partnered with. Asking myself questions like: what organizations could I support and help elevate? Does that organization have a mission that I believe in? And, does that mission translate into doing tangible good in our community?⠀ ⠀ So to the very sweet soul that nominated me, from the bottom of my heart, thank you SO much. I feel beyond humbled and grateful to be included amongst the other movers and shakers, and it warms my heart knowing that others get me and appreciate me for me.⠀ .⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ # #20ontherise #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #smallbusinessowner #borntobecreative #calledtobecreative #lovewhatyoudo #dowhatyoulove #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

Running Clearwater is a big team effort.⠀ ⠀ Grateful to the team that's able to take the work we do to a completely different level. They are master production managers, graphic designers, marketing wizards, innovative masterminds and so much more.⠀ ⠀ They put up with my crazy ideas and help to turn them into reality. And even when the workload gets a littttttle crazy, they somehow manage to keep their heads on straight and tackle the to do's with lots of grace and a dash of humour.⠀ ⠀ So thankful for you team, y’alls make my world go round 💖⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #thoughtfultuesday #thankfultuesday #thankfulforyou #dreamteam #teameffort #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

In May, @lrsglobal hosted an event on the topic of relationship sustainability and I'm so grateful for these amazing humans and their vulnerability.⠀ ⠀ In the year since our launch in Vancouver, it's been amazing to see the community we've been able to create. People from diverse backgrounds coming together to intentionally engage in meaningful conversations.⠀ 📸 @petitephotography_ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #yvrlrs #livingroomseries #lrsglobal #relationships #relationshipsustainability #community #communitygathering #connection #conversation #yvrevents #vancouverevents #changemaker #vancouverchangemaker lifeworthliving #spreadthelove #vancitybusienssbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at Kit and Ace

Throwin' it waaaaaay back to where all the fun times in community began. This photo was taken in 2011, when I first stepped into a leadership role with the @cancersociety Relay For Life. These two were my right hands, and as a dream team we led a committee to raise between $300K + in consecutive years. 🥂 to the good old days! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This used to be my favourite part of the year. I used to go on these "Relay" tours in June, visiting all of our events in the Greater Vancouver region. I would speak at some, volunteer at others. But undoubtedly the best part of each one was interacting with the volunteers and participants.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #fbf #canadiancancersociety #relayforlife #ccs #fightcancertogether #cancersurvivor #cancerthriver #giveback #givingback #vancouvercharity #charitableimpact #nonprofit #community #vancouvercommunity #changemaker #vancouverchangemaker #dogood #lifeworthliving #spreadthelove #girlboss #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #eventplannerlife #vancouvereventprofessional #eventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

We're officially switching things up!⠀ ⠀ To help streamline what I share, I've decided to create two separate channels for Clearwater:⠀ 1⃣ @clearwatereventsvan, where I'll shed more light into the incredible causes I'm a part of. It'll also showcase big events - from conferences to galas.⠀ ⠀ 2⃣ @clearwaterweddings, where I'll be sharing all things wedding. I'll be posting tips and tricks to help in the planning process, vendor features, and RAD collaborations I'm a part of. I'll also be posting all the happenings about the Cascadia Wedding Show coming up in October!⠀ ⠀ If there's any specific things that you'd like to see, sound off below. I would love to hear!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #clearwaterweddingsvan #clearwatereventsvan #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur
