Looking back, working in the event planning world was something that Jennifer was born to do. She’s always found great joy in making people around her feel comfortable and happy, was the “planner” in her group of friends and naturally gravitated toward customer service positions. In fact, every job she’s had – from high school to post college – involved working with customers and clients.
It would be a chance encounter with an old friend from high school about 5 years ago that would change her career path, and life, forever. Still living in Milwaukee at the time, Jennifer was hired by a local event planning company to assist the owner & lead planner. Soon, she was booking her own events and finding it a role she played naturally.
Chicago was a city that Jennifer visited frequently since she was very young — drawn to the trendy, exciting energy that buzzed around a major city. With every visit, she found it harder and harder to leave. A dream chaser at heart, she packed her bags and moved to the Windy City in 2013, deciding it was high time to see if big city living was for her. She hasn’t looked back since. Not only did she fall instantly in love with Chicago, she also fell instantly in love with the man that is now her (new) husband. Plus, it wasn’t long before she found incredible success in the local event industry.
Fast forward to today, and 100+ happy clients later, Jennifer is moving on to her next big adventure with the launch of her new company — A Fresh Event.
