Alascia Jones joined the world of special events in 2007 as an ambitious, bright-eyed, college freshman at Kent State University (KSU) in Kent, Ohio. It was at this institution that her God-given talent and passion for event planning and special events was awakened. As a student leader being involved with several organizations during her four-year stay, Alascia was given the opportunity to create and execute numerous events and programs for a very diverse demographic.
Upon graduating from KSU in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in business management, Alascia went forward to pursue her place in the event industry in a more professional manner by attending the Tri-C Event Planning program in Beachwood, Ohio. This program afforded her many opportunities through volunteerism and networking and even introduced her to her ILEA Cleveland family.
Alascia began as a student member of ILEA Cleveland in 2012 and since completion of the event planning program in 2015 has been a very active member of the Programs and Education committee and has now graduated to the position of VP of Programs and Education.
Alascia is currently a Venue Coordinator at the Mentor, Ohio location of NOAH’S Event Venue, a national chain of special event spaces for all of life’s events. Day in and day out Alascia is afforded the opportunity to plan and execute some of the most important days in people’s lives. She never takes this lightly and is continuously thankful for the chance to pursue her purpose as a special event professional.
