Janemarie is an ex-music industry executive who has worked with many world-renowned artists, PR companies, music management and event teams. She has assisted and managed artists in often complicated and time-sensitive projects, requiring strong time management skills and attention to detail.
After a challenging career in the music industry, Janemarie found herself freelancing and assisting many high-profile clients with personal shopping, gift wrapping, home styling and organising large-scale events. She is used to handling highly confidential matters and relies on her strong organisational and planning skills, initiative and common sense to deliver promises at short notice and always with style. Janemarie prides herself on being able to locate unusual presents for 'those that have everything', unique venues for VIP parties, one-off wardrobe needs for television and live shows, and matching the right personnel to those who need to employ but have little or no time to interview.
After seven years freelancing, Urban Angels is the next, natural progression for Janemarie.
Debbie's professional background is in management consulting, where she learned how to listen and understand customers' needs and how to translate their requirements into actionable plans. She has excellent project management experience and a proven ability to drive results on time and budget, skills she now brings to Urban Angels. Her secondary career in the wine industry was a much more hedonistic pursuit, borne out of a passion for wine and furthered by a close proximity to Napa Valley.
She achieved her WSET diploma in 2003 earning three scholarships in pursuit of her studies, and until recently has been part of the team at The Winery, an esteemed independent wine shop in West London. Recent pursuits have brought all these skills to the fore, as she has become involved in event planning, whether it be the organization of wine tastings or large-scale fund-raisers.
