or as my friends call me, "JJ"!
I have been planning exceptional events for over 15 years and absolutely love what I do. I am experienced, creative and flexible with a passion for helping others. Every wedding, or special event, is a unique celebration that should showcase the style, budget and personality of each client. My goal is to work alongside my clients to help them create meaningful and elevated events.
I graduated college with a degree in communications from Sonoma State University. I went on to plan many events in the corporate world ranging from parades of 30,000 to community fundraisers and business meetings. I added weddings as one of my specialties in the Central Valley and it has been the icing on the cake. I have now planned hundreds of weddings of all shapes and sizes and feel privileged to share in the treasured memories of these events.
I love to lend my experience and guidance to make the event planning process enjoyable and help others navigate the stressful, fast-paced world of events. One thing that sets me apart is my ability to maintain attention to detail while simultaneously keeping my eye on the big picture. Coordinating a wedding or other special event can be challenging. Let me handle the details so that you can relax and celebrate on your big day.
When I am not working, I enjoy time outdoors with my family and two adorable sons in my hometown of Lodi, CA. You can often find me sipping coffee with my dog Scout or out celebrating with friends over a glass of wine at a local winery.
