Hello! I’m Joanna Chan A.K.A. Jo, the newest team member to join AE Events. Originally from Southern California, I moved to Beantown to attend Boston University and graduated with a degree in Hospitality Administration. I ended up just loving the cold and snow so much I never left, even finding myself to be a loyal Red Sox & Patriots fan! Before joining AE, I worked at the Lenox Hotel & Hotel Commonwealth in Catering & Conference Services. After working in the hotel world, I decided it was time to shake things up and develop my career as an event planner in the city I love.
When I’m not at work you can probably find me hanging around the pool coaching or playing water polo. A sport not widely known on the East Coast, I’ve made it my passion & goal to grow the sport wherever and whenever I can. In addition to playing in high school, I played for the BU Women’s Team in college and now as an alum, I am currently the head coach of the team. You can also find me going on new beer & food adventures with friends or crocheting up a storm, especially in the winter. My most current project is a hexagon crochet blanket in different shades of blue! Other artistic interests include hand lettering, calligraphy & on occasion, if you’re lucky, you might get to hear me play the violin.
I’m looking forward to everything yet to come with AE Events. There is so much to be learned, so many people to meet and so many great experiences to be had! Can’t wait for my next blog to tell you all about it!
