Shakara flourishes with creativity and has always had a desire to help others implement and accomplish ideas. These things go hand in hand in the world of event planning and development. She has an uncanny ability to keep calm under pressure with a “never let them see you sweat” attitude. “Taking on tough challenges and seeing them through to the end is very rewarding, it’s important to go the extra mile.”
Having worked in the bridal industry in New York City and Los Angeles, Shakara is not new to what is considered a “high-stress environment” and meeting certain demands. She thinks swiftly and is always looking for new things to learn, especially in technology. Her managerial history has allowed for great leadership while always maintaining a peaceful, light heart. “Having an amazing team by your side such as Kennedy Events makes everything even better, it’s a world of difference!” To Shakara nothing is impossible, there is always something that can be done. This outlook has helped her accomplish several events such as bridal, musical and theatrical events, and the list continues to grow.
“The greatest feeling is knowing that you were able to make someone’s day in the best way possible. At the end of it all, that’s what it is about.”
