  1. Good to see women supporting women, what a great series for the month of March. Kudos to Kori for living out her dream. Can’t wait to read the rest!

  2. Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life is what they always say. That’s one of my favorite quotes because it’s so true. I started working in events back in 2008 and I knew that’s exactly where I belong.

    1. Hi MUAKimPorter! Yes, I’m in Queens. Feel free to contact me for all your event planning needs. And, I might need a makeup artist too!

  3. I love that she’s living out her dreams and taking the time to share what inspires her with other entrepreneurs. I imagine that she gets to plan some really awesome events, especially being located in New York.

  4. As a wedding planner myself, I can understand Kori’s why. There’s nothing better than that feeling your get when you helped someone plan and implement one of the most important day of their lives.

  5. I wish her a huge amount of success. Wedding planning is hardwork, but I love that she is up to the challenge.

Hey girlfriend, share your thoughts...
