“I especially love watching a child’s imagination kick in. Sometimes it can take a moment but you can see when they really believe that a Fairy or a Pirate is in their home and at their party…. That is just a magical moment for me”
At the time I remember thinking that there was a market for this business but the lure of the Corporate world proved too strong… “Dragonfly Parties” was finally born in 2012 when my husband & I had taken a career hiatus from our corporate jobs to backpack around the world and we were volunteering in an orphanage in Sucre, Bolivia. A lunchtime staff meeting had run long and there was about 80 physically &/or intellectually disabled students who were starting to get quite restless because their classrooms were locked. With the help of the only other volunteer, and a radio, we kept the children entertained with dancing and a HUGE conga line. I knew then what I wanted to create!
I’m the eldest of 10 siblings and I have 7 brothers and 2 sisters. We grew up with big parties in the back yard and I wanted to create something that replicated the kind of wholesome, family fun that we grew up with!
You can find me at all the parties as I still love donning my Fairy wings!
