Theresa Ford is an extraordinary event planner and a true professional. She taps into her formal education, qualifications and skills in business management and human resources to run a successful business. Through her business, Simply Elegant Events, Ms. Ford is a great communicator, she possesses a calm demeanor when engaging with clients, she's well organized and budget conscious. I found her to be so excited about her new venture . I've known Theresa for five years. She has assisted in designing and organizing several monthly staff events for out organization including the beginning of football season party where she created a design as if we were sitting at a stadium. In other words, she transformed a large conference room into a stadium with her design. I found that one of her strengths include putting her creative design in motion as she envisioned it. Theresa is also a wonderful wedding planner for any potential bride for her special day or other events as well. I wish her well!
