Sylvia C. Braga is founder, owner and CEO of Chavez Braga Productions, a full service event planning, design, production, and international hospitality company. With a widely published book with readers all over the world and a popular product line, Sylvia has creatively expanded her brand well-beyond her successful event planning business. Sylvia is also the owner, creative director, and designer of her eponymous fashion and lifestyle brand, Sylvia Chavez Braga, a line of feminine and timeless yet modern and trendsetting resort women's wear.
With a diverse professional background in event planning and management, psychology, education, theater production, and fashion, Sylvia's events, productions and body of work are executed with impeccable artistry, creativity and technique.
Her educational background in Psychology from the University of Maryland provides her with a unique and keen understanding of the needs of her clients and others. Her pure joy and affinity for helping others sets her superior quality of service above all the rest.
Sylvia is a certified event planner with a Certificate in Event Management from George Washington University and University of San Diego. Sylvia began her career in event planning and production more than thirty years ago by planning events internationally for major organizations and governments. Sylvia's notable strength lies in her unrivaled attention to details, grace under pressure, and creative problem solving skills, which are skills she practiced and consistently implemented as an international disaster and crisis relief counselor earlier in her career for the Armed Forces American Red Cross in Japan.
Sylvia also holds a California Teaching Credential in Early Childhood Education and is a children's book author, with her first book published in Spring 2010 and available nationwide and internationally.
Prior to serving as an educator in California, Sylvia served as an international teacher of multicultural education in Aomori, Japan. Sylvia's first book was inspired by her work as child development specialist at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, CA. She is currently working on her second book.
In addition to event production and fashion design, Sylvia's passion for ministry, community service, education, and the creative and performing arts, led her to her recent roles as Director of Contemporary Music Ministry at Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in La Jolla. In her over thirty year span of professional experience, she has served as highly sought after Marriage and Family Life Advisor and Personal and Professional Development Coach with a specialty in military personnel, couples, and families.
Based in La Jolla, CA and Manila, Philippines, the company provides professional event planning, designing and productions services for all types and sizes of social, corporate, and community events, celebrations, charity galas, and weddings throughout Southern California, the US, and internationally.
As a military family, Sylvia was raised in Maryland, across the Potomac from the Nation's Capitol, and spent several years living in South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee as a young adult. Throughout her life, Sylvia has lived and traveled extensively around the world. Her background and lived experience influence her signature style which is rooted in gracious Southern hospitality with a global sensibility. Her two adult daughters were raised internationally, primarily in Japan, where she and her husband were stationed with the U.S. military and Armed Forces American Red Cross.
Sylvia and her family split their time between their homes in the United States and Asia. In Sylvia's spare time, she enjoys painting, reading, screen and playwriting, meeting new people, and discovering new destinations. Her deepest passions are her creative pursuits and helping those in need.
