Background & Experience
Elements Consulting Inc. Founder and CEO Nu Epps (Born Nu’Nicka Ward), is a native of Houston, Texas who now resides in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and 2 sons. Nu began working in hospitality and event management at age 14 with an apprenticeship at a prestigious country club located in her childhood neighborhood of Missouri City, Texas. 

Throughout her undergraduate pursuit of a degree in Business Administration from Sam Houston State University, Nu continued with her apprenticeship on the weekends in her home town at the request of clients who entrusted and preferred her over other event managers. Post degree, Nu relocated to Atlanta and worked a combined 10 years as a university staff administrator responsible for signature events, concerts, performances, leadership development training, administrative policy development, and more at the prestigious Spelman College and Georgia's third largest institution Kennesaw State University. 

 A New Season
Before attending college to study business, Nu swore that she would not follow in the footsteps of many others in her family who chose careers in hospitality and culinary arts. Needless to say, her life’s journey led her right back to the place that she belonged doing exactly what God ordained her to do. Now, equipped with applied knowledge and practical experience in professional event planning and execution for more than 16 total years, Nu is ready to share her hard work ethic and creative ability with all who choose to trust her with their bottom lines and celebratory occasions.

A Solid Reputation
Nu is quickly progressing and securing her place as 
the "Nu" Kid on the Block in the event consulting industry. Nu has gained a reputation as a creative designer with an eye for detail and a focused, unflappable style. Clients attest to her total commitment to every project and her ability to find solutions for even the most complicated situations. She is a member of several professional organizations, an active member in her local community, and a proud member of the local elementary school chapter of the Cobb County PTA. Nu is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Grace Community Christian Church, HOA board, and holds positions with several advisory boards for businesses and non-profits owned locally and across the nation.

Throughout her full time professional career in academia and part time entrepreneurial endeavors, Nu dazzled clients both nationally and locally with her unique ideas and resourcefulness. Her keen sense for creating events that pop has consistently generated new and repeat clientele from word of mouth referrals since the Esyntial Elements inception in 2005. 

Nu realizes that to be amongst the best event
planners, she must go beyond being aware of the
trends and ideals in the industry and strive to
connect with the client on a personal and intimate level. Nu, along with her team, understand that it is most important to pay attention to all the finer aspects of the event process well before the actual event is manifested. Tradition, culture, sentiment, values, personality, style, and preference are the “esyntial elements” of any special event. These staples are the core principles of Esyntial Elements Consulting Inc.,
and what separate Nu from any other event specialist or consulting firm. She has a relentless work ethic and an amazing talent that is guaranteed to catapult her to the top.
