Koncept Events Partner Events Fort Lauderdale, FL
About Hillary
2 kids - Leighton, 3 and Merritt, 1. While i love being a mom more than anything on this planet, my career is intensely fulfilling and demanding. I own a leading corporate event planning agency, the 2nd largest in the State of Florida with my business partner, Angie. We have 40 employees and produce corporate events for Fortune 100 and 500 clients throughout the US and Caribbean. Fast pace, high stress, A-type personality, etc. My role in the company is heading up sales and marketing but really, i am more of the creative director for the majority of our 200+ events. I work out (when i can) to balance my life (which rarely happens when it is light out) and i love to travel (which actually never happens unless i am working). I am not a real party animal. I prefer a quieter setting where i can have great conversation, eat delicious food and drink yummy wine(s).

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Most of my peers are not at my level. They don't understand the juggle. I barely have enough time left to eat dinner myself much less make it. i have peaked as far as my female resources go, I hunger to surround myself with those who can help me get to the next level. I crave not being the smartest woman at my own table. I love collaborating and feel alive when other intelligent females inspire me to think differently. Its intoxicating and i don't get it enough. I also find it gratifying to help others build, create and grow their ideas. I want more!
