jESSICA aDAMS, oWNER & pLANNER
Jessica Adams, Owner and Planner of Elevated Events, graduated from JMU with a bachelor’s in Hospitality Management and a certification in Wedding Planning. She has extensive experience in every segment of the event industry including catering, sales/marketing, and venue sales. She started Elevated Events because she felt that events were lacking genuine hospitality.
Jessica lives with her husband, Andrew, and their “mini Noah’s ark”…2 dogs and 2 cats (and there is an active debate about 2 fish…). She confesses to an obsession with pineapples and enjoys visiting wineries and hanging out with her family. Oh, and being anywhere near the water, especially on a boat!
Jessica is also involved with local Richmond organizations: JMU Alumni Chapter, the National Association of Catering & Events (NACE), and Chamber of Commerce's Helping Young Professionals Engage (HYPE).
