Meet the Owner

Getting to do what I love everyday is truly the greatest blessing. I fell in love with the event industry my senior year of college at the University of Arkansas.

Being that events were my passion, I moved to Los Angeles, California to work in the industry with AOO Events, Images by Lighting, and TFS Studio during the fall of 2009. This experience provided the foundation to launch my own company. I moved back to my hometown of Maumelle and started Young Designs in January 2010. I have had the honor and privilege to plan, coordinate, and decorate events across the state of Arkansas and in over 35 states across the country, as well as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and Venice, Italy. I love being able to help others through my love of event planning.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my passion with you and work on your next event.
