I was born in Holland (hence the name, Pure Dutch), and moved to Ontario at the age of 10. Met my fiance when we were 15 years old. We dated for 4 years, then went our seperate ways for 10 years, and now happily living in Clearview Township with a little baby of our own, my 2 step-kids, and 2 rescue dogs (plus likely a foster dog).

I started Pure Dutch in 2014 and earned my certificate with Wedding Planners Institute of Canada. I began as a wedding designer, focusing on sourcing and setting up decor and florals. I then moved to Guelph and took on a Maitre 'd position with Pearl Hospitality where I coordinated 100+ weddings to build my knowledge and experience. I'm now happily offering day-of coordination through Pure Dutch.
