Accessible Arrangements is the event planning industry’s handicap: to help planners successfully engage guests in an inclusive, accessible, and safe environment. We help eliminate barriers to accessibility by providing supportive services to unique guests; and creatively modify event spaces to comfortably accommodate guests with sensory or mobility challenges.
To deliver greater accessibility in the events industry by eliminating barriers to provide easier navigation, ultimately increasing inclusion and diversity to help engage, empower, and enhance the human experience.
Our work is focused on using principles of human-centered design to help clients be creative and inclusive. We ask the questions to provide uniquely detailed design, planning, and presentation of a client’s special occasion, meeting, or guest experience. Our arrangements help amplify an event’s value and reduce the risk of uncertainty.
I live with an invisible disability that can potentially limit my mobility, speech, and disrupt my day without warning.
As an Event Planner, my career spans over 30 years as an Adjunct Professor of Event Planning and Production (Baruch College, NYC and University of Texas Arlington), Learning Annex (NYC) speaker; tour manager, and technical designer of national events and experiences. I provide a niche service within the event planning industry by helping event hosts, planners, and venues create customized, first-class guest experiences in a safe and accessible environment.
Recently, I was selected to join the Empower by GoDaddy program serviced by the Women’s Business Center of Ohio, to accelerate my small business journey.
