“Jennessa is one of the most creative people I have ever met. Her wonderful ideas combined with her strategic thinking about her clients’ businesses lead to incredible results. And with her warm personality and great sense of humor, the projects are always enjoyable!
I work to bring a uniquely powerful blend of imagination and business savvy to my role as president and creative director of Celebrate. Along with a talented team, I lead all strategic planning, business management, marketing, and service delivery for the company that I founded fifteen years ago. I believe that clients benefit from my extensive business background and creative flair. And they can’t help but have fun along the way, as I try to infuse positive personality, exceptional humor, and high energy into every promotion and event that I plan and execute.
Before taking the plunge into Celebrate, I spent 10 years at a corporate interior design and architecture firm in Boston. I worked in several areas of the company over this decade, including design, sales, marketing, project management, and operations management. As a result, I was able to hone my business skills while leveraging my creativity to help the firm with strategic planning, client projects, and business development.
Originally from Iowa, I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Iowa State University’s College of Design and an MBA from Northeastern University. It was there that I tapped into the left side of my brain, found a love for finance, graduated Summa Cum Laude, and was inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society – the highest honor a business student can receive. Who would have thought!
I have been published in The Boston Business Journal, More, Women’s Business, The Andovers and the Andover Townsman and pen a blog as Just Jennessa sharing my ideas, tips and hacks for helping busy families. Celebrate has been recognized by the Boston Business Journal as one of the top 25 Event Management firms in the Boston area for more than 10 years.
