The Designer

Hi! I am Devora.

I am a designer of once-in-a-lifetime events

For more than two decades, I’ve been successfully guiding clients through celebrating their most treasured Lifecycle and Milestone events. As a certified family educator, inclusion specialist, theatrical director, guidance counselor, coach, and event planner, I offer a unique approach to generating meaningful and memorable moments in time. If you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed trying to bring a personalized and captivating experience for your upcoming event, In-Person or Virtually, my services will introduce clarity and inspiration to bring your vision to fruition. Some of life’s greatest moments pass us by because we didn’t know how to collectively recognize how special they are. My aim is to help you unveil, create, and protect these points in time from the rote, expected, or mundane.
Together we can imagine, expand, and launch your untapped vision.

Creative & Fun

When planning a Jewish lifecycle event, I can think of no one more creative and fun to work with. I have been to multiple events that Devora has designed. She is especially attuned to the unique make-up of a family and the person being honored, and she organically builds the milestone around that. You might know that you want your occasion to have a particular feel, but she will bring it to fruition from beginning to end. As soon as you share your desires, her creativity kicks into gear, and together you generate a vision that everyone will remember.
