Lead Designer, Owner
In 2013, Thérèse discovered her love for the event industry after planning and designing a baby shower for her sister-in-love. Over the next few years, she honed in on her skills by planning events for close friends and family members. Therese found value in taking event planning and design workshops which allowed her to establish her company’s brand.

Her ability to work closely with others, analyze difficult situations, and problem-solve under pressure, prove to be important skills in the event planning industry.
The "Helping Hans" Project
As a child Thérèse's mom's nickname was "Helping Hans" (Hans is short for her middle name, Hansford). Growing up, she was known for offering assistance to people in need, and as a parent she did not deviate from this habit. Thérèse's mother is truly the essence of The Helping Hans Project.
