{Published} James Madison University – Madison Magazine

October 22nd, 2012 in press

I’m so thrilled to share that Sparkling Events & Designs is being featured in Madison, the official magazine of James Madison University.  I am a proud graduate of the College of Business.  I want to publicly thank my husband who reached out to Madison to tell them about my business.  He IS truly my #1 supporter and a fellow JMU alumni as well.

The article means a great deal to me because JMU is where I learned many valuable life lessons, made life long friends and received an education that serves as the foundation of my professional career.  It is truly an honor to be recognized in this manner.  As one of many JMU alumni in an extensive network of business professionals and entrepreneurs, I am so grateful that Madison chose to feature Sparkling Events & Designs.  Would you like to know a little more about me, my family and the story behind SED,  read the full article here!
