OWNER
I grew up in San Diego and received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from San Diego State University. After graduating from SDSU, I used my degree to get a job in the non-profit sector, performing graphic design and also event planning. I eventually moved on to become the Senior Graphic Designer of a large baby toy and baby gear company. I designed everything from logos and packaging to toys and shopping cart covers. But I missed the excitement and creativity involved in creating unforgettable events. Outside of work, my friends and family were asking me to use my design skills and event knowledge to design invitations for them. And getting married myself opened my eyes to how valuable a good vendor is in the process of planning your big event. This made me realize that designing invitations and stationery for weddings and big events was my niche. I loved it. So I started Whimsíque in 2009 while continuing to work full time as a Senior Graphic Designer. In mid 2011, I was able to quit my corporate job and now am pursuing what I love- giving Whimsíque 100% of my focus (with the help and support of my husband). I feel truly blessed to do what I do.
