Owner & Lead Instructor, Sage Wedding Pros

Michelle Loretta

The way that money flows thru a business makes sense to me. My history at accounting firm Deloitte, running my own wedding stationery business, and consulting wedding and event businesses on finances for the last 8 years gives me a unique perspective in the industry. I get how to make the money work. AND - I LOVE IT. I love digging into the numbers and fixing things so that a business owner can see more profits.
