For those of you who could take a few minutes to sit down and speak with Marni about her life so far, one aspect would ring loud and clear: she’s an educator at heart, and passionate about teaching others how to use their past experiences to learn, grow, and manage a promising career and business. She believes we are all shaped through the combination of our personal and professional struggles, losses, accomplishments and overall life experiences.
Marni has served on the boards of several professional organizations and charities including International Live Events Association (ILEA) NJ North as Communications Director, Communications VP, President Elect, President, and now Immediate Past President, Wish Upon A Wedding, and the American Bridal Consultants (ABC). She also founded several networking groups, because she believes we are stronger as a team, than we could ever possibly be when working alone. Marni also founded and produced The EPIC Summit, and Women in Weddings Conference, both innovative wedding and event industry conferences held in Northern New Jersey. These events were lauded as unique and valuable by attendees and faculty alike.
Her career as an entreprenuer started in 2008 after her wedding when she founded CardBoxDiva.com
, a custom wedding/event card box, favor box and décor company. Through her networking and social media experience she then founded Marni Gold Creative Consulting.
Prior to owning her own companies, Marni’s career started as a vocalist after she attended the University of Central Florida and achieved a Bachelor Of Music Performance. She began teaching vocal performance in public schools, while earning a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. She continues to teach voice and piano lessons privately. She has traveled all throughout Europe, singing opera in England, Italy, and Germany.
Marni resides in Northern New Jersey, accompanied by her husband, Aaron, her adorable two sons, and her playful Shih Tzu, Gizmo.
