QC Event School Graduate Spotlight: Ayla Otto

QC Event School Graduate Spotlight: Ayla Otto

I’m Ayla Otto, owner and founder of Events by Ayla, LLC, a full-service wedding design and planning company based in Alaska. My husband, Kyle, and I were both born and raised in Homer, Alaska. Kyle and I met when I was 18 and we’ve been together for 11 years! We currently live in the MatSu Valley with our three sons (who are all 4 years old and under). In 2017, I graduated with my Bachelors in Hospitality and Event Management from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. In 2019, I started dreaming of a way I could help people while also incorporating my passions. That’s when Events by Ayla was created! I’ve been in business for 4 years and love it more every single year!

Meet QC Event School Graduate, Carisa Lockery!

Meet QC Event School Graduate, Carisa Lockery!

I’d graduated with my Bachelors Degree in 2004, and I decided to go back and pursue my Masters Degree in 2007. In those 3 years, I was trying to find a job that I really thought I would be happy doing. My dream was always to work for an advertising agency in New York City! However, when I met my (eventual) husband in 2005, I decided this was no longer the path I wanted to take. I hated every job I had that required me to be stuck in an office from 9am – 5pm every day. I just knew I wasn’t cut out for that. So, I gave some thought as to what really made me happy…
