Emily grew up in Long Beach, CA and attended Cal State Long Beach, where she acquired a B.A. in Communication Studies. From the age of 16, Emily knew she wanted to be in the wedding industry. While in college, she worked with a wedding planner in the Orange County/Los Angeles area. Through that position, she encountered Jay’s employees at various events and was impressed with their professionalism and passion. Emily officially joined our team as an Event Specialist once she had completed her studies. After a few years at Jay’s, Emily was offered an opportunity to work on events for the Super Bowl in Arizona. During that time, she gained unparalleled knowledge and experience in the events industry, as she was a part of organizing events for upwards of 10,000 people.
Emily has always considered Jay’s to be her home. She loves working for a company where everyone’s ideas are valued and that Jay’s is continually growing. After her time away, we welcomed Emily back on our team as our Director of Weddings & Special Events. In this new position, she trains, encourages and supports our Event Specialists to succeed in their roles, while fostering and developing relationships with our amazing venues partners. Emily couldn’t have found a more perfect fit for her talents and she can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Jay’s.
