HilaryM’s start in event planning was quite fortuitous. While working at a law firm, one of the partners charged her with the task of planning an afternoon children’s themed birthday party and an evening executive party – both for the same day. Even though it was the first time she had ever thrown a party, let alone two, the challenge did not daunt her.
With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management, a background of modelling and launching her own product line of handmade Italian shoes in the UK, in addition to fifteen years in customer service in a variety of industries, HilaryM’s experience and skills all converged, as if she’d spent her life training for just this moment. Both parties were such rousing successes, she received many commissions for more parties from the guests. This unexpected task sparked her passion and she discovered her calling. Thus, HilaryM was launched.
