Charlotte was born and raised in Long Island, NY. Like any Long Islander, she isn’t afraid to share her opinion and does so frequently. Charlotte left corporate America and joined the NGE family in 2016 after working for years with Nikki to plan her own wedding at Bank Street Events. She’s our go-to ‘fix it’ girl... there is no task to big, small or challenging for her. Her gifts of organization, attention to detail, creative imagination, concept design and enthusiasm have earned her a reputation for unparalleled excellence as an event coordinator and designer. When not planning events, Charlotte is most likely trying to convince her husband, Daniel, to let her get a third cat sister for her fur babies Olive + Fiona.
Fun Fact: All of Charlotte’s favorite things start with ‘C’: Cats, Coffee, Chanel, & Coldplay. In fact, she once traveled to Paris, France just to see Coldplay in concert (of course she stopped at Chanel, too)!
