Meet Our Team


Operations Manager

Sara has always been obsessed with all things weddings and has dreamed of being in the industry ever since she was a little girl, watching “The Parent Trap” on repeat! With a love of organization and clear communication Sara was a great addition to The Standard team three years ago. When she isn’t answering phone calls or emails she is hanging out with her baby boy Leo, teaching her Australian shepherd new tricks and drinking WAY too much iced coffee!


Event and Wedding Coordinator

As a Rockford born and raised native, Maya is so excited to be staying home post-college and joining our team! With a degree in Event Coordinating, working in the wedding industry was exactly Maya's end goal. She loves everything about staying organized and connecting with our couples to ensure their big day runs seamlessly. When she's not guiding tours at The Standard or meeting with couples, she's hanging out with her boyfriend and dog Simba, playing with her niece and nephews, or grabbing dinner with her friends!
