Hello everyone! My name is Hayley Smith and I am so excited to begin this journey with Agathi & Co.! I first heard about Agathi through a friend of mine who had her as an instructor at the College at Brockport. Being a student there myself, I found myself wanting to know more about her and her company seeing as event planning was something I’d been interested in. So I did what any other curious person would do--I googled her. Weird, I know. But I stumbled upon her website and knew that was exactly where I wanted to get my start. I contacted Agathi that day and met with her as soon as I possibly could. When I met with Agathi for the first time I knew that I had stepped into something big.
For a long time, I found myself scrambling for a future job or career that I could see myself in down the road. When I first considered event planning I had no idea where that would take me or where I’d end up, but when I came upon Agathi & Co. I couldn't help but think that this was the perfect opportunity to learn, experience, and get a first hand look at event planning in its true form. I think the thing I appreciate most about event planning is having an idea and being able to see it come to life, detail by detail. Being given the opportunity to see how that happens is so thrilling.
I am excited to meet new people, make connections, gain experience, and most importantly make memories that will last forever. I can’t wait to see where this ride will take me!
