Tawnya WrightPrivate Event Coordinator(562) 494-5000, ext. 222In 1995, I moved from the Bay Area to Long Beach, CA to pursue a degree in fashion design. After graduating from Brooks College in 1997, I fell into the Halloween industry where I worked for over 20 years. During this time, I had many opportunities to create event design assets for family and friend’s functions. In 2017, I had the pleasure of working with Juliann at Rec Park while planning my daughter’s Sweet 16, which is when I really started getting the itch to change careers. After about two years, that dream is coming true! I have always had a nice balance between creative and technical abilities, so working as a Private Event Coordinator is right up my alley!Fun Facts
