Life as a Journey
The passion for coordinating events struck Anne while working at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears) as the Event/Game Day Assistant & Tour Coordinator. After moving back to her hometown of Columbia, MO and earning her business degree from Columbia College, she gained experience working for Learfield Sports and Inside Columbia magazine. In 2010 Anne decided to venture out on her own and started AnnaBelle Events. Now, nearly five years later, you’ll find her in her office working with clients and working on new projects to grow the company. Aside from AnnaBelle Events Anne is also passionate about giving back to the community that raised her by staying involved in a number of organizations. She is a founding member of THRIVE, on the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Central Missouri and very active in the Columbia Chamber of Commerce and Missouri Wedding Connection. Anne is a recipient of the Couple’s Choice Awards for 2016, 2015, 2014 & 2013. In 2016 Anne completed the Gay Wedding Institute Certification Course to better serve the LGBT wedding market. AnnaBelle Events proudly welcomes all couples as our clients.
Anne will discuss the value of networking, how to say yes and not no, and giving your grace.
