This week as a part of our Friday Introduction series, we are hearing from Jean! Jean Ellison began her career in weddings while working for a historic home located on the banks of the Mississippi River. Over the past nine years, Jean has built her career by managing weddings for Five Star resorts, luxury hotels, and country clubs across the South. Jean most recently comes from the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts where she worked as the Social Catering Sales & Events Manager for both the Houston and Denver properties. While clients and colleagues appreciate Jean’s warm personality and quirky one-liners, it is her knowledge of food and wine, passion for service, and ability to effectively guide her clients that brings her to the Calluna Events team.
