Tell us about your company and what your role is.

IMESevents is built on a business model of outsourcing and networking.  We attempt to keep our full-time staff at a minimum, while joining forces from our network of professionals to bring your events to life.

Through a series of planning sessions, we will help you develop an experience that leaves your guests wanting more.  Our expert team will guide you through the process to a successful celebration!

My role is Chief Events Officer (CEO). 

How did you get involved in special events?   

During my many years as a meeting planner, I always wanted to move into special events.  Life threw me and my family some really hard health issues.  I have been dealing with this for the last five years.  You can read the full story on our website  The bottom line is that I came away with a new appreciation of life.  I completely re-started my company with a new brand and new focus to Celebrate Life through Special Events! 

Describe what you do best as an event professional.

My strength is in coordination and team management.  Utilizing strategic thinking and creativity at IMESevents develops our client’s visions into reality. 

We are proud to announce the IMESevents FREE launch party on May 19th at the Copperleaf Gardens and Event Center in Broomfield, CO from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Full details can be found on our blog at www.IMESevents/blog
