Kennishia Duffus

Event Planner

Started from the bottom, now she’s here. It all started with a simple idea. We are thrilled to have played such an integral role in the launch of Kennishia’s new business venture, Kyree’s Kreations. Inspired by the belief that life’s most precious occasions should be celebrated, Kennishia’s aim is to be the right hand to her clients while mirroring their vision. From idea to execution, she is the resourceful, creative and well-connected support her clients need in order to alleviate the daunting task of planning a memorable event.
