Deirdre has called the Triangle area home since she was a little girl. Her passion for the arts blossomed as an adolescent and has grown exponentially from there. She began dancing in jazz, modern, and tap, and transitioned to ballroom during high school. As a competitive dancer, her accomplishments have included many top honors including Top Solo.
Deirdre graduated William Peace University in 2015 with a B.S. in Business Administration and Management with a concentration in Leadership and Management skills. Her professional background started with informal museum education and camps programs before she made the jump to event planning. Notable events where she has been part of the planning team include the Spring Daze and Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festivals, Pimento Cheese Festival, and Heart of the Holiday for the Town of Cary. Her focus is the guest and staff experience.
Outside of event planning, Deirdre also has experience in human resources, finance, facilities, data analytics, and education.
