Why they Started Event planning has always been a passion of mine (ever since I was 16 and planned prom & formal)! However, I thought I had to get a ”real” job after college so I went into management consulting and then onto USC Marshall School of Business pursuing my MBA and my MRED (Masters in Real Estate Development).During my entire corporate & school career I was the ”go-to” social & networking event planner because I loved doing it. When I graduated from Marshall (in 2009 at the absolute bottom of the economy), looking for a real estate development job was non-existent.

I started planning events on the side while part-time working for a multifamily investment company, until one day I realized, what am I doing? So, I used my entrepreneurial USC experience and launched ”Preppy Chic Events” in 2011.
