After earning her Biology degree from the University of Colorado, Jennifer worked all around the world as a Marine Biologist with whales and dolphins, much of that in Hawaii. She produced large-scale conferences and events in the Marine Biology field before returning to Colorado to lead Gemini Events and found Mauna Creative.
And now, as both firm’s Owner/Creative Director, Jennifer funnels that passion and drive into exceptional Event Production for locals, destination couples, celebrities, politicians, actors, and international clients.
Many of these relationships extend beyond the event day and result in friendships and new memories. Jennifer is the Lead Planner and is present your entire wedding day, with experienced staff on site to assist and create.
