About Erika LaDousa


I've loved planning events before I even found out it could be a career choice!  I used to plan themed parties for my friends while in high school and then, once in college met with a career counselor who told me to pursue what I loved, even if it wasn't part of the mainstream yet.  20 years later, I am lucky enough to combine two of my passions: event planning & working to make the world a better place.   


Loves: Spending time with my two daughters and amazing husband, traveling as much and as internationally as possible, volunteering & snowboarding


Dislikes:  Cooking (I really wished I loved it) & brussel sprouts (yes, I've even tried them with bacon)



"Erika is a phenomenal event professional...she is extremely energetic, motivated, and has such a positive personality, you can't help but to be encouraged and inspired by her. "

Grace F.


“I have watched Erika turn a room from an empty shell to a magnificent & elegant affair glowing with warmth & sophistication.

Laurie S.


"Capable, attentive, detail-oriented, friendly, and professional, all of my dealings with Erika have been hassle-free."

Alice-Lynn O.

"...I was able to get VeDA to hire the coordinator, Erika LaDousa, to coordinate the entire event. Erika coordinated the event the second year at the University. She brought a new platform, Whova, and I thought it was a huge step up over the previous year. She is a local south Minneapolis resident and one of the most competent planners I have ever seen in my life. If you need an outside consultant for any event you could not do any better than to contact her.
