Regional Sales + Assistant Training Manager
While the Beatles may have recorded the song “To Know Her Is To Love Her” before she was born, we're convinced that The Universe had JessBrie in mind when John Lennon sang those lyrics. You simply can’t walk away from a conversation with JessBrie without the warm fuzzies. And while she's endearingly sweet, she's equally fierce and determined. In fact, before joining the Here Comes The Guide sisterhood, her days were often spent powering through the chains of command at companies like UPS and FedEx to locate lost or delayed engagement ring shipments. Undeterred by all the "on hold" music she was forced to listen to, she saved the day many times by tracking down a ring and getting it delivered with minutes to spare before the groom got down on his knee. She made it her mission to ensure that love prevailed—and she still does by discovering the best wedding venues across the country.
Extracurricular activities: Netflix, wine, and a jar of Nutella. I also enjoy going on adventures and exploring new places to grab a beer, watch a baseball game, and eat! I’ve also been known to dabble in some softball, but that requires running so I don’t do it too much anymore. Also, I really enjoy going to live music shows! Usually punk rock, and you’ll find me dancing the night away in the mosh pits. Yup, the mosh pits!
Source of inspiration: My mom. Not only is she one of the best people I know, she’s my best friend. And Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I pretty much look up to pretty ladies that kick ass!
Guilty pleasures: Chick flicks, and anything Vampire or zombie-related for sure! THE TRUTH IS OUT! Also, I literally carve out “me time” each month, which is dedicated to Thai food takeout, a bottle of red, and a “True Blood” binge or some awful, cheesy, predictable romantic (all ends happily ever after) movie.
Best advice to brides: It’s SO easy to get caught up in every little detail and obsess about everything going the way “it was planned to go”. Just know It’s not going to go as planned — people who RSVP’d may not make it, or the groom may have had to break up a fistfight 5 minutes before the ceremony (true story) — but LET IT GO (I picture the Frozen song being sung right now!). Just remember what the day is actually about, laugh, have a glass of wine, and dance your little hearts out because you two deserve that!
Favorite things: In addition to my guilty pleasures, I love puppies, my family, my kittens (Z and Goose), Thai food, beer, mountains, fishing, hiking, rodeos, tattoos and tattooed men, baseball (Giants!), pub crawls, spicy chicken wings, Bayside (favorite band), In and Out Burger, vacations, margaritas, piña coladas, petting zoos, farms, live music, my bearded dragon (Spike), coffee, Carmellows, and wildflowers.
What I like most about my job: Everything. This company is truly amazing, and I feel good about what I’m doing to help couples find their dream venue. And above all else, I love THE TEAM! This group of women are the most fierce, strong, funny, incredibly smart, and compassionate I have ever met, and I am so thankful for all of them each and everyday :)
