OUR PHILOSOPHY

MEET LESLIE

I was born in Trinidad, then moved to Toronto Canada where I pursued my education in the hospitality industry.  But way before that; I fell in love with entertaining.

 

I once worked for Miami Dade County’s Deering Estate as their Special Events Director. I have a real passion for what I do. So much so that I left to start my own company, Coconut Grove Events!

 

I am a wife and mother of two great kids and I get extensive assistance from my husband Rudy with my business.  In my spare time, when I am not designing or planning an event, I enjoy gardening and traveling.  My extensive travel through Europe and the Caribbean allows me to add some cultural flare to each event.
