Mine isn’t the typical “I planned my wedding and was inspired to become a wedding planner story.” I came into this career after a long past professional life in operations, hospitality, and tech—where I did everything from bartending and serving to planning multifaceted company retreats and running emergency hurricane-response logistics (so you can bet I don’t rattle easily).
On top of that, I was keeping three small humans alive and—as they grew—planning all kinds of functions at their schools. As someone who comes from a big Italian family and doesn’t bat an eye at hosting 25 people for dinner, I loved every second of that extracurricular event planning—but it came to a screeching halt when my son graduated high school. As fate would have it, right around that same time I found a hand-drawn brochure I’d created years prior when I first got bit by the wedding-planner bug (blame it on J. Lo)—and you can probably guess what happened from there. I founded Rogan & Co., and it felt like I’d finally found the passion and excitement I’d been craving (let’s face it—I was always meant to run the show).
Today, I use every single bit of that non-linear path to serve you and yours in a way I’m confident you won’t find elsewhere. I have the kind of life and business experience that allows me to remain calm and take things in stride—no matter what challenge we may face together—and a passion that just won’t quit (yup, that’s me poring over every detail of your wedding as if you were one of my daughters). Plus, as a Hudson Valley native who’s lived here my entire life, if you’re looking for someone who knows the hidden-gems, must-hit spots, and the best vendors—I’ll let you in on all my secrets.
More than anything, I believe authentic relationships are formed one honest conversation at a time (read: you’re totally allowed to pick up the phone and call me).
Whatever the worry or wish at-hand, you can always count on me to be upfront—it’s what this moment demands, and it’s what you deserve.
