A native of South Carolina, Mandy grew up in Columbia, where she attended The University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Retail Management. She moved to North Carolina in 2008 when she married her Special Forces husband and has been here ever since.
For as long as she can remember, Mandy has loved making special moments into unforgettable memories. Her love for these experiences began by planning events for friends and family and grew exponentially. Prompted by her successes, and the encouragement of her event attendees, Mandy began seeking out ways to make her dream of becoming an event planner a reality. This pursuit led her to Just Jenny Designs & Events.
Experiences gained through fine dining restaurant catering, combined with a passion and love for people, have aided her in the professional realm. With a vision for fulfilling her client’s wishes, Mandy’s attention to even the smallest detail gives every event that unique and personal touch. Mandy’s favorite part of an event is the look on people’s faces when they first see their transformed space. She strives to make ordinary events extraordinary: from bachelorette parties to bridal showers, rehearsal dinners to wedding receptions, intimate gatherings to large-scale events and everything in between. This super organized, extremely positive, five-foot tall ball of energy will work tirelessly to make your dreams come true!
When Mandy is not planning events, you will find her in the kitchen cooking with her hubs, outside playing soccer, experiencing other cultures in far away lands, standing in line all day to get front row seats for her favorite concerts, attempting to make her house look like her Pinterest boards, and being “mom” to her adorable rescue dog Buster.
