Jamie Wilkinson, founder, managing member, Sunshine, and INTP, has been doing events independently since 1998, and has otherwise held various corporate business positions in Buying/Fashion Merchandising, Corporate Operations, Finance, and Legal. Her past experiences working in Retail Buying, as a Project Manager, and as a Paralegal naturally lend themselves to organization, coordination, and collaboration through building strong working relationships, contract reviews, negotiating pricing, creating budgets, and managing high levels of detail and timelines.
Jamie is a life long student of everything who relishes in research and planning processes, networking and building relationships, and hosting themed parties as a creative outlet. She is hopelessly nerdy and enjoys developing spreadsheets for analysis and reporting because it is much like solving a puzzle. When it comes to personal time, Jamie likes to visit unique festivals, find nearby fun and family-oriented experiences, dance a little, or binge-watch Netflix. She has also been seen watching random webinars just to learn new things and is not shy about getting up to sing at karaoke.
Teresa Medina, founder, managing member, Sweet T, and ESFJ, enjoyed a long-standing career in the Legal field, most recently working as an Office Manager. She has an extensive HR and Bookkeeping background, as well as event planning for the firm where she organized speakers for a nationally recognized organization by booking not only industry movers & shakers, including even former Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker.
Teresa's resilience and dedication contribute to the successful completion of every project she touches. She has an eye for style and design and enjoys frequenting antique galleries, flea markets and crafts fairs - transforming the items she finds into unique, inviting and interesting spaces that people really enjoy being in. In fact, her house has flooded twice, and twice she redesigned and remodeled all living spaces completely by herself! Give this woman a Bob The Builder tool belt, y'all! She also is an insightful and creative wedding officiant who is able to craft personalized and touching ceremonies for each unique couple she has the privilege of assisting. When not working, she can usually be found at Home Depot (because house projects never end), volunteering time fundraising for L.I.P.S., or out and about smiling and dancing.
