Meet our design team

Courtney Pollard

Courtney is the Director of the Stage Right Lighting Weddings & Special Events Department. A graduate from Virginia Wesleyan College with a degree in Communications and a minor in Art, she has been with the Stage Right Lighting Weddings team since February of 2014. After moving back down to Virginia Beach from her hometown in New Hampshire, she could not stay away from beach for long! Starting off her career as a Marketing/Graphic Design intern for the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts and after assisting a top coordinator in the area, she soon learned that the event and wedding industry is where she was meant to be. Courtney adores the details when it comes to helping brides design their dream event. It is all about the little touches & creativity! From bridals shows, consultations, to social media, you can find her doing all of the above. Her love of ice cream, field hockey & country music keep her going, & you can’t forget anything Boston sports!

Jeramie Hobizal

Jeramie is the Event Manager and Technical Advisor at Stage Right Lighting. Born in California, he has lived all across the country, but found his home in Virginia Beach. Taking an interest in technology at a young age, he attended the Advanced Technology Center while still in high school, where he attained multiple certifications before graduating. Jeramie has a great sense of adventure and is always looking for the next new obstacle or puzzle to solve. These interests have driven him to finding his love of technical event design. Every event is unique, special, and rewarding in how they all present their own challenges. With over a decade of experience under his belt while still in his 20’s, Jeramie brings a remarkable skill set and an exceptional level of attention to detail ensuring all of those challenges are met with ease, and each event goes beyond the clients expectations. When Jeramie is not undertaking the hurdles the design team is throwing at him, he enjoys relaxing on the beach and tackling real world obstacles, running Spartan Races.
