Hi! I'm so glad you're here.
A little bit about my background....
I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Communication & Media Studies. I've always been driven and ambitious, so I decided to complete my degree in a short three years.
After graduating college just shy of 21 years old, I entered into the radio industry. There I eventually became a morning show co-host here in Pittsburgh.
You're probably wondering... 'How did she go from radio to event planning?' I think you can have as many passions as you want in life, and both radio and planning events are mine. Believe it or not, they're actually quite similar.
Co-hosting a morning radio show was fast paced, and you constantly had to make quick decisions. I have always thrived in an environment where you have to juggle several "moving parts." Event Planning is the exact same.
After cutting back my time in radio, I decided to follow my other passion and launch Joyful Events by Jade.
I believe I have a natural talent for organizing, planning, and helping others. I've always been a leader with a knack for creativity.
There are a lot of very talented wedding and event planners in Pittsburgh, so I decided to incorporate my craftiness into Joyful Events by Jade not only to set myself a part, but to make planning even easier for brides and party hosts.
I don't want you to have to search for extra vendors to create your ceremony programs, party favors, seating assignments, or whatever else it is you may need help with. Let me be your one stop shop for planning and design.
When I'm not party planning, I enjoying cheering on all sports Black & Gold. I'm a musical theater enthusiast, Game of Thrones fanatic, and cat mom of two. I also love exploring new Pittsburgh restaurants and enjoying it's beautiful nightlife with the incredible man I share my life with, Jason.
