Meet the team.
In 2014, Shawna Allred was asked if she "Plnned Events"?
Her reply, "I mean, I guess so. I know how to do it but I'm not an official 'Event Planner.'"
This client took the leap and jumped in with a vision to plan an in-person 350 person conference. They nailed! Over the next 7 years, they grew this event together to over 1,000 people in-person with hundreds more joining on Live Stream. As Shawna keeps gettng asked by more and more people that same question of if she "plans events," she finally decided to officially launch RubyKay Productions in 2019.
Working with top industry leaders, coaches, and influencers is our jam!
We commit to creating an experience with excellence. To us... it's all in the details.
Shawna - Founder, Owner, Lead Event Producer
Growing up as a Pastor's kid, Shawna found herseslf behind the scenes helping in weddings, funerals, women's brunches, staff trainings, kids' events/camps, and more. It was just part of being in the church family. Little did she realize, she was picking up the skills of organizing just about every type of event possible.
In high school, she found herself as captain of the cheer team organizing the trip to Nationals across the nation, planning PROM, and multiple half-time shows and assemblies. In college, she oversaw the volunteer team of a mega church and led the coordinating and training of hundreds of volunteers.
In 2000, Shawna was discovered by a Film Director who saw potential in her. She was hired as a Film Producer producing for brands such as National Geographic, Discovery Channel, TLC, Baby First TV, and more. Many of her projects received Emmy and Telly awards.
After getting married and starting a family, Shawna decided to calm the crazy producer hours and work for a local high school doing events and extra curriuclar activities. As her kids got older, she enjoyed stepping back into the church/ministry side as Children's Director planning and executing classes, kids' camps, women's retreats, and leadership development.
Shawna most enjoys leading teams and working with leaders, influencers, authors, and industry leaders to raise up powerful Kingdom-minded individuals through the power of events and retreats.
