What made you decide to start your own business?
My father was an entrepreneur, and my mom was a full-time learning disabilities specialist with tutoring business on the side. So, I knew from an early age that I wanted to call my own shots. I think as an business owner, you truly get out what you put in, which I learned is not always the case in the corporate world. It has been a 20-year road to get here, but I couldn’t be happier.
How did you come up with the name of your business?
I wanted to describe what my business does in one word. The word “pomp” means a show of magnificence and splendor, and that’s what Pomp delivers!
What is your favorite part of what you do?
I love collaborating with fellow vendors to deliver a truly memorable experience. I think the best work comes from a team effort. I also love the opportunity to design for an event from soup to nuts–from the save the date to the gobo to the favor.
Do you have a favorite moment or memory related to Pomp Creative?
One day my 8 year old came into my office and said, “Mom, you have the coolest job. I want to be just like you.” She melted my heart. An added benefit of running my own business is showing my 3 girls that they can be and do whatever they want.
What is your favorite type of event?
My favorite event is one that gives me the chance to really flex my design muscles. I have been a designer for about 17 years, and in that time, I’ve sort of become a jack of all trades. Finding the best way to apply a brand to multimedia and paper is super fun!
Is there anything you’d like to share about yourself?
I received my design degree from the Corcoran College of Art + Design and my business degree from American University. So, I have lived in the DC area for over 20 years. I’m a mom of 3 little ladies. And I love sports, wine & great tunes.
Is there anything you’d like our readers to know about your business?
I’m taking what I’ve learned from working in agencies and the brand department of AARP to deliver cohesive and creative wedding branding.
