In her role of Creative Director, Jessy consistently exceeds our customers’ expectations, designing some of Toronto’s most styish events and weddings. Jessy is an edgy designer whose talents are a huge asset to our creative team.

Jessy pulls double duty and is also the General Manager of our draping and floral departments.

While Jessy was a full time student in university, she was kind enough to fit in a few extra hours working part time with our design crew. Rachel and Jessy ended up on an assignment together and it quickly became very clear to Rachel that Jessy was a keeper. Rachel recalls that day “I was impressed with Jessy’s efficiency, happy spirit and creative edge. These are all things required for our team members. I knew that Jessy was committed to her school and obtaining her degree so I made a plea bargain with her right on the spot. I asked her if she would consider taking a leadership roll within our company upon her commencement, we would hold a place for her. We were thrilled when she said she would call us first to discuss career opportunities.” Jessy continued to work part time until she graduated, always demonstrating leadership, customer care and of course a wicked sense of creative style.

When Jessy enjoys a day off she prefers a slower pace then the craziness of the event industry and relaxes with her husband Adam and their sweet little short haired ‘Zoey’
