Meet Jenifer Rodriguez
Born in Los Angeles, raised in El Monte, CA, settling in Chico, CA. A mama of two, Luna Mae and Zolie Peach, a dancing queen, eccentric, wanderluster, nature worshipper, Jesus lover, a natural healer, a community activist, a true believer of community and collaboration, a person with a mental illness, a person willing to break all barriers, a kind and sweet soul who is destined to travel a true humanitarian path and work in any field that benefits mankind.
I started planning events at the age of 15. I come from a Nicaraguan family and we love to entertain. We were always throwing epic parties and events. My family is in the hospitality and event industry. Event planning is all I have ever known from working community events, benefits, weddings, festivals, concerts, throwing huge backyard parties, the list goes on and on.
I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Recreation, Hospitality, and Park Management with a double option in Event Management and Community and Commercial Operations at California State University of Chico. I would not be who I am today if it weren’t for my mentors.
I am passionate about supporting entrepreneurs in their creative journey through collaboration, creative direction, and storytelling. I enjoy promoting love, awareness, and conscious events. I live a sustainable and mindful lifestyle. I enjoy learning on my own, through experience and from others. Knowledge is power.
My passion is “creating beautiful events with our earth in mind.” I believe that together we can make a difference one event at a time!
As a mother, I have chosen to save, contribute, and build up society for the future of my daughter and future generations.
As a designer, I have chosen to create beautiful events with our earth in mind because it helps my clients strive toward social, economical, and environmental responsibility through positive social environments.
