A typical day in my life includes…

running around with my hair on fire but it’s why I love what I do, no two days are ever the same.

I was born…

in Arizona, I am an actual native.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

everyone remembers that time the Diamondbacks beat the Yankees.

I’m listening to…

dance band demos for a music loving client.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Sam Elliott. Wait, am I married still?

One thing I cannot live without…

my dogs.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a P.E. teacher.

I’m inspired by…

creative thinkers, those who will not take “no” in making any kind of positive impact on people’s lives. My work inspiration has no division from my own inspiration.

The one person who motivates me is…

was always my father. He has been gone 20 years but we talk every day!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

dare I say “World Peace”…I love Sandra Bullock.

The perfect day would be…

a day on a beach with a iced cold margarita in my hand and no phone.

My first job was…

I pierced screaming babies’ ears at Earport at Metrocenter Mall when I was 16. Back in the 1970s it was a mall that was the envy of all. When I got my drivers license I went back and cruised it in my Lemon Yellow Z28 I thought I was the *&#$.

My favorite escape…

Cabo, the only place I have found where I can tune out.

My life…

has been blessed I would not go back for anything.

I’m currently working on…

midyear taxes, ugh.

Always…

say what you mean, mean what you say and do what you said you would do!

Never…

be that person.

Favorite Quote…

“Grab the Aqua Net it’s about to get real”.

Biggest Dream…

three weeks in Italy with Sam Elliott 😊

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who believe everything they read/hear.

More about Karen…

I started SPEV in 2016 after becoming bored with working in resort ballrooms. Scottsdale Private Event Venues is a premier event production provider that only works in its own unique venues. Based in Scottsdale, AZ, we offer access to privately owned airplane hangars and a luxury high end car venues for hosting private and corporate events to groups from 200 to 2000 from across the United States. We have the ability to take a blank slate and make it something amazing, unique and memorable. We are seeing more events take giant steps into progressive locations, and it is working like a charm to engage and amuse guests.

It sounds like fun and games but it is a lot of work, a lot of late nights, and lots of blood sweat and tears…but that’s why we do it right! Who else can say they were a bodyguard for Leslie Nielsen, and they got to participate in the laying of the wreath at Arlington National Cemetery? I really should write a book about my event experiences…you thought The Real Housewives of New Jersey was juicy!

To get my creative juices flowing, I enjoy spending time with my 5 rescue dogs, friends and family. With my two loyal sidekicks, Android and Caffeine, no deadline feels hopeless.
