Kelly's career in the event industry began nearly 15 years ago when she started working for one of Chicago's top catering companies. Here she learned so much about the event industry while working to plan and execute weddings, corporate and non-profit events with Chicago's top professionals. She developed close relationships with vendors and clients and fell in love with the industry. This is when she knew events was where her heart would always be. 

From planning and executing gala after gala she became very interested in philanthropic events, where she soon thereafter began working for Rush University Medical Center and later becoming their Director of Events. Kelly then realized she loves events of any kind and became inspired to open her own company, Kelly Kloak Events. 

Kelly’s eye for detail and creative mind will guide you through every phase of planning your event. She specializes in her boutique approach creating personalized events that are a true reflection of her client's style and personality. Whether you envision an intimate dinner in your backyard, a regal black-tie affair in the city or a tented outdoor wedding, Kelly will help transform your dreams and make them a reality.
