“Yes, Jen is everything you want in an event coordinator – she is knowledgeable, professional and incredibly organized...What sets Jen apart from other coordinators is her exceptional calmness and amazing problem solving skills. I never doubted our gala would be a success with Jen guiding us through!”
Harlene Ellin, Former Board President, Chicago Improv Festival Productions
As an Event Coordinator, I have produced a wide spectrum of events including:
- Elegant Galas, from cocktail parties to sit-down dinners
- Celebrity-Hosted Benefit Movie Premieres
- Opening Night Receptions
- Neighborhood Home Tours
- VIP Donor Appreciation Events
- Alumni Events in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles
- Large scale community events for the Evanston150 campaign
I am an enthusiastic event coordinator and thoroughly enjoy the process of working with a team, juggling and organizing the many components of the project, keeping all aspects on schedule and within budget, and creatively crafting an event that is enjoyable, productive and efficiently run.
I am very comfortable managing multiple aspects of an event simultaneously and self-sufficiently. I have extensive experience in securing event sponsors, choosing from among potential venues, developing the format and pricing of an event, overseeing budgets, overseeing promotional materials, building live and silent auctions, designing systems for reservations and auction processing, working productively with a Board of Directors and Event Committee, and overseeing staff and volunteers.
I am a strong advocate of thoughtfully tailoring an event to its audience, and constructing multi-tiered fundraisers that encompass various revenue building opportunities within one event. I believe in encouraging an upbeat and supportive atmosphere within a team, with open and clear communication and a positive and collaborative spirit.
