Jackie Sahagian

Director of Special Events for Shepherd's Run

As a Director of Events, there no better feeling than hearing those 8 little words, "that was the best event I ever attended!"  It can instantly melt away the stress and worry that goes into the planning and execution of a seemingly flawless event.  Spoiler alert, there's always something that comes up!   As a event expert, I pride myself on knowing how to manage through the tough situations, and rely on my relationships with the vendors and management skills to overcome any obstacle.  As a sales professional, increasing revenues and achieving booking goals is a top priority for me, and one that I do not fall short on. 

 

I'm so lucky to have landed a career that allows me to do what I love and work with clients on the most important day of their lives, or in their company's year!  Bringing a clients' vision to reality is my biggest passion.  During my downtime you can find me sweating it out at a spin class, knitting creations in a local class, or volunteering in my southern Rhode Island community.  I'll never turn down a great Pinot Noir paired with with a delicious charcuterie board.

Fun Facts About Jackie:

  • If I wasn’t a wedding caterer what would I be: I would love to be a wedding dress designer and name my boutique after “Jackie O”.
