Dana M. Johnson
Hi! I’m Dana, a co-owner of Jade & Joy with Kelsey and Christine (my sister and my friend, respectively). I’ve always been a planner and list-maker, but I’m also a creative, two traits that lend themselves well to event planning. I’m also a writer, so these two fields allow me to stretch 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!
Favorite color scheme: Purple, pink, and turquoise

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!
