Meet Jennifer

Jennifer Bishop is an event planning professional with over 15 years of experience in the industry. Prior to founding J. Leigh Events in 2013, she spent 8 years planning events of all sizes for a nonprofit. She found her passion for creating and facilitating community events and knew she wanted to do more of it in Charlotte.

Since then, Jennifer has slowly built up her team and professional resume. She’s planned everything from weddings to shopping center events, nonprofit robotics competitions to large-scale dining experiences. She’s worked with presidential campaigns, restaurant groups, small business owners and expecting families. Her breadth of experience in event planning has made her a sought-after professional for events in Charlotte and the wider area.

Her start with a nonprofit lives on in her current work. Nonprofit events, be it fundraisers or volunteer events, are some of her favorites to plan. She spent 4 years volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte for their yearly fundraiser, a fashion show called Girl’s Night Out. Jennifer co-chaired the 2015 and 2016 event and oversaw the organization and execution of all aspects of planning for the fashion show portion of the event.

Likewise, her commitment to the Charlotte community runs deep. She is on the board of the Bayhaven Restaurant Group, a Black-owned and managed restaurant group supporting Black chefs in the Charlotte area and beyond through their restaurants and dining experiences, such as the Bayhaven Food and Wine Festival. J. Leigh Events is the event planner for this massive food festival celebrating Black culture and food.

Jennifer’s passion, organization and expertise make her one of the top event planners in Charlotte.
