Get to know Coordinator, Juliana of P.S. & Associates Event Planning
Juliana Slemenda- Coordinator at P.S. & Associates Event Planning
It’s all about love for this small-town girl. A hopeless romantic and big believer in happily-ever-after, Juliana takes great joy in learning peoples’ love stories and seeing them through to their big day. Yet another service industry veteran (servers of a feather flock together!) she knows the importance and strength in genuinely connecting with people, attention to detail, and excellent listening skills – she will never stop hustling to make dreams come true.

Stranded on an island with one fellow P.S. team member, who is it + why?
Sheena would probably keep me alive and I know our mutual priority would be finding drinkable WATER. (But I could easily list reasons that I’d be LUCKY to be stranded with each and every one of our teammates.)
Finish the sentence:
On a P.S. wedding day I can’t wait to...
make some magic and LAUGH with some of the strongest, smartest, savviest women I know.
