She’s our fearless leader, our biggest dreamer and quite literally the one who keeps Team Orange afloat day in and day out. Oh, she’s also the founder and co-owner (alongside her husband Kevin… more on him in a future post) of Merry Me Events. Cher has this incredibly genuine + sweet go-getter drive that inspires all of us to bring our A-game all the time. Don’t be shocked if you get an email from her in the wee hours… she’s usually up working (working out if she has time) by 4am, when everyone else in her house is still asleep. We adore Cher’s effervescence and her contagious laugh. We love that she’s such a sucker for details, even though it sometimes drives us bonkers. Most of all, we are so grateful for the opportunity she gives us to create beautiful experiences for the people we meet along the way… it is seriously the best thing ever.

More About Cher…

How long have you been with Merry Me? Est 2007

What is your favorite thing about the job?  So blessed doing something I love that fills my creative tank! I love the team we work with!

Married/Kids/Furbabies? Married to my husband Kevin (and co-owner) for 20years! I have 3 great kids- Cade, Lilli and Jager.

Favorite thing to do on day off?  There is no such thing as a day off unless I leave on vacation… but on partial days off I like watching my kids play sports, helping in Jag’s classroom, swimming with Lilli and relaxing with the family at home.

How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet? I  wish I still had some goodies from the 80’s – but sadly the oldest pair of shoes is probably a pair of cowboy boots I got to line dance at Heartland – downtown South Bend years ago.
Choose a movie title for the story of your life? The Greatest Showman – working hard to create the magic and dreams for others then watching the vision of all the details we’ve created come to life – All while trying to balance a beautiful not-so-perfect family

“Million Dreams”
“Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make
…However big however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me…”

What is the strangest talent you have? The balancing act of multi-tasking family while keeping each event organized and designed in my mind.  My spinning plates have spinning plates!
