Cheryl Bailey has worked in the events industry for 12 years and before opening Yellow Umbrella Events, owned an award winning catering company. It was hard to keep her away from the event and travel planning side of the business so she decided to take the leap and follow her love of event planning on a full time basis. She launched Yellow Umbrella Events in 2011 and has been specializing in incentive travel and destination weddings ever since!
When she’s not planning travel for her clients, you can find her hanging out with Shea and her 2 children or on the beach in Mexico.
