-Sherrissa Becton

Creative Director Sherrissa Becton was born and raised in NC and she is a true Southern girl at heart. Her creative style was shaped by watching her mother and aunts decorate different spaces. Between helping them growing up and having other creative interest, she realized she not only had a passion for coordinating, planning, design and décor, but also a skill. Once she planned and coordinated several events on her own, it was easy to surmise the profession she belonged in.

Sherrissa acquired her knowledge and training from Ashford University where she gained a BA in Business Administration, Master’s in psychology and her MBA. She is also a Certified Wedding and Event Planner (CWEP) through U.S. Career Institute. After understanding she always had a spirit for designing spaces and events to advance her expertise, Sherrissa founded Destiny Events, Inc.
