My Own March Madness

If you had asked me what my last week of March would look like, I would not have expected it to bring a new city, new job, and new place to call home! Within the last seven days my life has completely changed.

When it came time to job search, I knew exactly what I was being called to do. I have always had a passion for events. Being able to understand a client’s vision and make it a reality brings me such joy! I have been a part of planning and coordinating events for non-profits, for-profits, conferences, summer camps, weddings, etc.

After some less than encouraging job searches, I decided to take matters into my own hands. When I came across All Grand Events’ website, I immediately got excited! If I wanted to follow my dream, I knew that All Grand Events would be the right place for me. Looking at their floral designs, event décor, and the awesome event opportunities they are a part of, I just knew I had to get in contact with the owner, Emily. I emailed her my credentials and hoped for the best. And when she emailed me the next day, I couldn’t have been more thrilled! From our brief email conversations, I could tell Emily was so down to earth and personable. Even if I wasn’t the right girl for the job, I still wanted to be her friend! She made me feel as if I was talking to my best friend or sister, and when we met that Thursday, she was just as wonderful in person as she was over email.

I was so excited when she asked me to be a part of the All Grand Events team! Providing wedding, corporate, and event design is a new part of the event industry for me, and I am so looking forward to the challenges and opportunities it will bring. Of course starting a new job, moving to a new city, and experiencing new things would have anyone’s stomach in knots. My nerves are starting to kick in, but my excitement for what lies ahead quickly eases those nervous feelings. I look forward to bringing your vision to life and am excited to be the newest member of the All Grand Events’ team! -JS
