Amy Milnes

Amy is coming into the Events industry fresh out of an 8-year long career in Early Childhood Education. But what she may lack in experience, she makes up for in enthusiasm! 
During her past career, Amy discovered a love for event planning on a small scale, particularly when it came to cultural celebrations such as Christmas, Hannukah and Diwalli. She has now returned to studies to begin translating her skills to events management, and she hopes to one day be planning similar events on a larger scale.  
 This will be Amy’s first foray into Event Management, and she is excited to start her new career off with a bang!

Mikayla Vella

Mikayla began her events journey at a very young age. She often tried to provide ‘expertise’ to her parents at the ripe old age of 7, about where the table should go, how it should be set and what colours matched most.  

Mikayla strives to involve every guest during the event, by appealing to all their senses, from the first invitation to the final extravagant details. Her creative passion allows her to elevate an event from a typical design to something memorable and extraordinary. Her immersive, inclusive and interactive approach often brings a paper concept to life.  

Mikayla has worked on events throughout her studies, managing teams from excursions to functions for clients. She has also been a part of some of Melbourne’s most major events including; the AFL, the Grand Prix, Melbourne Cup Day and the Australian Open.
