Gonzalez graduated from Wharton High School in 2000 and earned her undergraduate degree in communications at Florida International University in 2005. She also achieved many awards as Director of Public Relations of Alpha Kappa Psi, The Professional Co-Ed Business Fraternity, and other various club organizations.
From there, Gonzalez interned for the Miami New Times and PG Creative advertising agency, based in Coral Gables. In these roles, she gained much experience in working with clients as well as playing a major role in the companies strategic direction, including planning major events. She then began working in the Customer Relations Department of Big Brothers Big Sisters, while finishing her degree. After graduation, she was promoted to work as the Development Manager, where she has played a major role in the company's growth over the past four years. Currently, Ryan manages a development team at a private school, Academy Prep, where she helps to raise 2.1 million dollars annually by running corporate galas and events. Gonzalez has done it all, from managing major campaigns, to helping plan Galas, Golf Tournaments, to small luxury events. On the side, she even managed to help plan weddings for family and friends.
Following her dream to turn her success into a business, she earned her wedding planner certification from the Wedding Planning Institute (WPI) in the summer of 2008. She has planned over 30 weddings and events over the years and hasn't had an unhappy client yet.
In her spare time, Gonzalez likes traveling the world, working out, and spending time with her husband and her family. She holds regular jewelry club outings at her house and volunteers with the several animal organizations.
“My passion for this business all started because everyday you make someone's vision come true. You turn their dreams into reality and that sense of inner peace is what I like to give my clients. Having worked in events and planning my own wedding, I realize the importance of resources a planner can offer companies, individuals, and their families. My service is invaluable. There are so many details to take care of and things to look out for when planning an event and a certified, experience professional helps you through these times and can give you valuable advice.”
