The Sister’s Keeper Team
Founder & CEO, Lead Planner
Nephthali Ramirez was born and raised in Florida and traveled along the east coast for her schooling. As a child, her favorite shows were featured on WE TV and TLC; her favorite shows included the likes of "David Tutera's: My Fair Wedding," "My Four Weddings," and "Say Yes to the Dress."Without a doubt, those shows inspired her into going into the wedding planning business.
Nephthali is a Program Coordinator for a large philanthropic-focused nonprofit in the Bay Area by trade. She met her husband, in Oakland, California where they currently reside with their handsome baby boy.
When Nephthali is not working, she is doing yoga, running, painting, or trying to master the recipe for her favorite Indian food, paneer masala.
Chelese is an NYC girl through & through - being born & raised there. A doctor by trade (which she does do by day), she has always enjoyed planning - being that friend who would plan activities from day trips to full week-long trips for friends.
After connecting with Nephthali in college & being a maid of honor at her wedding, she realized her love of watching wedding shows and videos should spill over into planning weddings and she hasn’t looked back since.
When she’s not working or planning weddings, she loves hiking, reading & trying out all sorts of cuisines - to continue to broaden her life’s horizons!
Social Media Coordinator
Beldina is our newest Sister’s Keeper Team Member! Beldina joins our team as our new Social Media Coordinator. She is a native of Richmond, California. One way Beldina likes to keep herself organized is to write her daily tasks and events down in a planner and in her phone calendar. (that’s why she’s a perfect addition to our team).
When she is not working, you can find her listening to music, dancing, or outdoors. When asked what brought her to Sister’s Keeper, her response was simple. “I want to help Sister’s Keeper flourish by expanding their connections and community through social media.” We are so excited to have her on our team!
Nicole Giles was born and raised in the Bay Area and spent a number of years in Southern California securing her undergraduate degree and working after college. While she holds a number of roles doing communications consulting and project management/coordination, she's always had a special love and passion for both event planning and for weddings.
When Nicole is not working, she can be found doing organizing work in Oakland, rereading James Baldwin, spending time with her family or attempting a new yoga pose.
