About Bethany
Owner and Lead Planner

Originally from the Seattle area, Bethany landed on the East Coast in 2004, working in the music industry and planning dance nights, dinner parties and fundraisers in her spare time. She began her formal event planning experience in 2011 before officially launching Modern Kicks in 2014.

About Zulyha
Design Lead

A born and bred Hudson Valley native, Zulyha heads up the design for the Modern Kicks team. Having spent eight years living in NYC, gaining a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, completing multiple yoga certifications, and working in the fine art industry, she found her way back to her upstate roots and Modern Kicks. Zulyha eats, sleeps, and breathes design—in addition to event styling; you can always find her curating outfits, flea market hunting for the perfect interior design pieces, and creating unique, wearable floral art.  She pulls inspiration from the vast array of textural landscapes the Hudson Valley has to offer, her travels through Central America, and love of fruit orchards.
