A PASSION FOR
Margaret has always had a love for bringing people together. She was known for arranging group dinners and gatherings for her friends and family growing up. From that time forward, she knew what she was destined to do.
Growing up in East Lansing, Margaret was (is) always a die-hard Michigan State Spartan fan, and she just happened to get lucky that Michigan State also had the #1 public program for Hospitality Business. During her time in college, she joined many organizations that planned events or were involved in learning more about events. Margaret held board positions for multiple years in the Hospitality School’s premier student-led events, Les Gourmet and Destination Auction. Among many different accomplishments, Margaret was awarded the Richard and Cherrill Cregar Outstanding Hospitality Student Award. Upon graduation in 2015 with a business degree, Margaret already had experience as a wedding coordinator and conference service coordinator.
In the five years since starting full time in the event planning world, Margaret has held multiple event positions that gave her exposure to various different types of events. She was the Conference Service Manager for a resort where she got to experience and manage an average of 70 multi-day events a year. The events ranged from meetings, conferences, incentive trips, product launch, and client events.
After seven years planning events at various different levels, and much support from her family and friends Simply Suited was born. Margaret is a firm believer in life-long learning and pushes herself to constantly learn and evolve her knowledge. Nothing is more exciting to her than learning what the newest trends and event ideas are, and coming up with creative solutions using those. Most recently, Margaret has enjoyed diving into all things virtual events! The industry is ever-changing, especially in these years, and she’s always ready to change with it.
When Margaret is not working she is usually with people she loves the most, eating out or grabbing drinks to catch up (2020 was definitely different), traveling to see new places, dancing her heart out, or working on her next big project. But first and foremost, she’ll never ever say no to a good time!
