Stacey Smith CWP, CEP
I first discovered my talent and love for planning events when working in non-profit fund development while attending college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I have worked on many large scale events such as the Taste of Colorado, Austin Pride Festival and the Zimbabwean Music Festival as well as weddings and milestone celebrations. I was team lead on a "non-event" that was featured in the Austin Business Journal as "an up and coming idea for NPOs".
