The Poised Events Team
Donnah Phipps-Hagan / Owner and Event Manager

Born and raised in Canada, I have been very blessed to be a part of beautiful multicultural family.  My mother from the Philippines and my father from Trinidad & Tobago, it was always about family, friends, church functions, and sports, there are so many memories.  I moved to Toronto to go to school for fashion marketing but after school and 4 years working in the industry, I found my love for hospitality and events.  

I moved to Denver 11 years ago for love… and yes, we finally got married!!!   It was natural for me to continue my passion within the industry and now with over 17 years working in the catering and events world, I finally decided it was time to become “she boss”. It all sounds so serious, but as you get to know me, I am all about the laughter, the adventure and being in the moment. 

When I am not planning events or networking with the best, you can find me either in the gym training for a fitness competition, cruising the mountains on my Bonneville Triumph or trying to do TikTok videos with my toddler!! I love to spend time with friends, trying new restaurants, traveling to new places and taking the time to learn and be inspired.

Hello, my name is Alyssa and I’m from Denver, Colorado. I’m currently studying at Metropolitan State University of Denver, working towards my bachelors. I’m majoring in business management and minoring in hospitality management.

Alyssa / Poised Events

I have been working with Donnah for 3 years now, putting together weddings, bar-mitzvahs, corporate events, and networking events. While working with her, I have been lucky enough to find my passion in the event industry. Donnah has been a great mentor to me, and I’ve enjoyed working with her throughout the years, helping me learn all I can about this industry!

When I’m not working, I love to be outdoors, whether that’s going on a hike or driving through the mountains. I also love going to the gym to lift and practice yoga. It keeps me focused and helps me remember to have a positive mindset!
