About Us

 

Dana M. Johnson

 

Hi! I’m Dana, a co-owner of Jade & Joy with Kelsey and Christine (my sister and friend, respectively). I’ve always been a planner and list-maker, but I’m also a creative, two traits that lend themselves well to even
t planning. I am a linguist and a writer, and these two fields allow the use of both my analytical and creative muscles. I love being behind the scenes, making the magic happen, which is applicable to both writing and event planning. I’ve helped design and execute birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers, and weddings, and my favorite part of it all is seeing people’s faces when the whole thing comes together. I look forward to helping make your creative vision a reality!

Kelsey R. J. Ogenia

Hello! My name is Kelsey, and I’m a co-owner of Jade & Joy Events along with Dana and Christine. Although I am a trained public health professional, I have always had a passion for event planning.In high school, I planned senior class events, trips, and parties. While incollege at the University of South Florida, I began planning baby showers, and during graduate studies at BostonUniversity, I decided to take a class in wedding coordination and design. In early 2017, my sister, one of my closest friends, and I decided to turn our passion for event planning and design into a small business. I love to help people plan the social event of their dreams. We have planned baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, and weddings. My favorite things about event planning are getting to know my clients and putting their vision into action. My goal is to make your day stress-free and memorable!

Bonjour! I’m Christine, one of the owners of Jade & Joy Events. It is an absolute pleasure for me to help create and execute the visions of brides, grooms, hosts, and hostesses in each and every event I coordinate. From a young age, I began planning and envisioning the weddings, parties, and events of friends and family. Fast forward to today, and this passion has only grown with time. As a meticulous, detail-oriented person, I have thrived planning and coordinating various weddings, bachelorette parties, baby showers, and events for family, friends, and acquaintances. My unique eye for design, formed through my time living in France and traveling worldwide, has aided me in creating spectacular and original visions for each client. Partnered with my co-owners, I believe that we can make your vision come to life. Our goal is for you to sit back, relax, and let us provide you with an unforgettable experience!
