Shirley is of Colombian decent but was born in Miami. “My love for music was awoken when watching the movie Top Gun. As a toddler, I would prance around the house singing “take my breath away”. I am sure I drove my mother crazy!” Shirley later attended Coral Reef Senior High and then graduated from Florida International University where she developed a passion for event design through her art classes. For many years, she worked for Corporate America where she volunteered her time creating new ideas for their holiday and birthday events. It was clear then that Shirley’s passion lay as a Luxury Event Designer. Years later, she became one of EMG’s Luxury Event Designer and living her dream. “I love my job and I love meeting with my clients and helping them create an epic celebration. I take great pride in knowing that our clients, the hosts, are able to kick back and dance the night away.” In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their two kids. “After 15 years of marriage we still love to go out dancing on date nights. I LOVE to travel! Going to a new destination excites me every time, and it is even better if there are outdoor activities like hiking, paddle boarding, and/or camping.”
