She owns and operates Curated Events Detroit, a corporate event planner specializing in growing small businesses in the Metro-Detroit area! When not chasing after her super determined child, Sofia enjoys drinking wine with friends, laughing, and watching movies with her husband. She loves experiencing new things and traveling, and is looking forward to introducing her son to all her favorites places.
