Our Speaker 

Morgan Montgomery, CPCE

A New England native, Virginia resident, and lover of all things modern, clean-lined and loud, Morgan discovered her passion for unique and vintage finds as she designed and propped shows while working towards her B.A. in Theatre from The College of the Holy Cross. With years of sales and customer service experience behind her, she spent three years in the trenches of the off-premise catering world before co-launching Paisley & Jade, a specialty rental company serving the Mid-Atlantic, in 2012. Morgan’s passion for business and events extends beyond the walls of P&J, and she loves to share her knowledge through the Paisley & Jade specialty rental coaching program and by speaking at national conferences such as NACE Experience, The Special Event, Lend & Gather, and The School of Styling. An active member of NACE on the local and national level, she is a past president of her local chapter, and also currently serves as the Vice President on the National Board. Morgan was named one of 25 Young Event Pros to Watch by Special Events Magazine in 2017 and her personal and professional work has been featured extensively in national and regional publications, including Richmond Magazine, Sage Wedding Pros and The Huffington Post.
