From the desk of: Jamie Donovan
Hi all! I’m Jamie and I am one of the newest members of the AE Events team.
I graduated from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina in 2014 with a degree in marketing and management. I fell in love with the South (especially the close proximity to the beach!) and all of the beautiful new cities I was able to explore. If you love delicious food, wonderful people, and historic sites, check out Charleston and Savannah – I highly recommend it!
Despite my love for all things warm and beach-y, however, I made the tough decision to pack my life back up and move the 900 miles back to Boston (and the dreaded snow). Post-graduation, I wasn’t exactly sure what direction I was going to go in as far as my career. Coming from a family of nurses – my mom and both of my sisters are RNs – I was drawn towards the healthcare industry. After spending sometime in a clinical office, I joined the external relations team in the Office of Development at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. During my time there, I had the opportunity to plan donor recognition events and I truly fell in love with the entire event planning process – taking their vision and bringing to life!
So here I am today as a full-fledged event planner at AE Events! When not in the office, you can most likely find me “down the Cape” with my friends, family and dog, Murphy! He is a four-year-old Irish Setter, who is full of life and lots of energy – but has no concept of personal space.. or that he is not lap dog.
For the weekends that I don’t make it down to West Dennis, you can find me sitting in the sunshine, glass of prosecco in hand, probably a burger in the other – ideally listening to live music!
