We’re excited to introduce this week’s Event 360 Teammate Spotlight. Enjoy a glimpse into the personal and professional life of Jessica Kinsella!
Position: Art Director
Start Year: 2014
What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360? I was Art Director on a small creative team at Genuine Scooters. I was responsible for every little aspect of their creative work from design, photography, social media, web development and of course taking the scooters out for a spin on beautiful Chicago days!
Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360? One of the things that really interested me in working for Event 360 was how the company collaborates with clients who best represent their core values. I also believe with how much of our lives we dedicate to our jobs, it’s important to pursue something we are passionate about and Event 360 felt like just the place to do this!
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing? If I wasn’t working I’d love to take family portraits for people who can’t afford them.
Favorite part of your job? I love creative problem solving and getting to work with a talented group of people.
What do you like to do in your free time? I love to travel, cook brand new recipes, check out up and coming bands in little venues, spend time with my wonderful friends and family and get my blood flowing and heart pumping with some biking, running or yoga.
Most memorable event experience? My second day of work was hopping on a plane to Philly to experience my first Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. I feel so lucky to have gotten to experience such an amazing event as soon as I began my new job at Event 360. There was a time during the Opening Ceremony where all the walkers were taking a moment of silence to remember those who are no longer with us and there was a v-shaped formation of geese that flew directly over the crowd honking loudly. It gave me goosebumps (no pun intended) and was a really beautiful moment.

On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag? Camera, granola bar, and sunscreen
