Marie is the founder of Relax Event Studio. She holds a BFA in Drama from New York University and has been working as an event planner and theater producer for over 15 years. Having worked in the private, public and non-profit sectors, she has experience in organizing everything from corporate events to baby showers.

Marie is passionate about events. She believes in bringing your imagination to reality. She also loves to tackle the challenges of event managing and taking the stress off your shoulders so you can enjoy your event. 

Between 2012 and 2016, Marie represented Grand Forks as a state legislator before retiring from the public life to start a family. She was the Event Manager for five Grand Cities Art Fests - an arts festival that brings more than 35,000 people to downtown Grand Forks each June.

Leah Tanaka 
Happiness Creator

Leah loves new languages. She has earned a BA in Spanish with a minor in Japanese from Colorado State University, and in the fall of 2017 she will begin her master's program in Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. (It's so fun to work with clients all over the world!)

Leah discovered her passion for event management when she started planning international trips for herself and her friends. She loves her job and more than that, she loves to help people make their event a memorable one.

Leah is currently planning her own wedding (to Marie's brother!), and Relax Event Studio is designing and printing all of the paperie for her special day.
