She is… an event planner! Meet Jess Poon, Owner of En Amour Event Boutique and Co-Founder of DiscoverHER Project. “Growing up, I have always loved attending events of all sorts, from weddings to galas, fundraisers to conferences, it was only a matter of time until I end up on the other side as a coordinator rather than an attendee! Aside from my type A personality and top notch prioritization skills, I plan events because I truly believe they are more than the sum of their parts – they should be an experience from the moment guests open their invitations to the moment they leave the event.

I just opened the doors to my new Wedding & Events company, @enamourevents, in Ottawa, and I am excited to start meeting vendors, booking clients, and planning some wicked celebrations! For the longest times, I have always lived my life constrained by conditions and timelines – and despite how important timelines are for EVENTS, they are irrelevant when it comes to our LIFESTYLE. Us women are a powerful force, and I truly believe that we can accomplish just about anything we want, if we have the right attitude and right support system by our side. It’s never too early to begin, and it most definitely is never too late to start. Take care of yourself, do what you love, and in between all that – help others along the way where you can.”

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously. “ – Sophia Bush
