With nearly three decades of experience, Price has a passion for bringing events to life and recently attained Project Management Professional® certification to broaden her planning skillset. She also serves the college as an adjunct instructor in the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, having taught convention and meeting planning and currently teaching wedding planning and management. Her courses provide real-world experience and exposure to the events industry, covering topics such as client and vendor relations, building an event business, cultural and social foundations and day-of-event execution.

An accomplished event planner and marketing communications professional, Price has been honored with consecutive Couples’ Choice Awards by WeddingWire, an InShow award from American Institute of Graphic Arts SC, and American Advertising Federation Addy awards throughout her career. She served two years as the Association of Bridal Consultants South Carolina State manager and earned Professional Wedding Planner designation.
