Jean-Marie’s background and experience lies in Project Management, where she spent the past 10+ years of her life, bouncing between New York and Philadelphia.

Jean-Marie’s and Patrick’s paths crossed years ago while working at the same restaurant in Philadelphia, where she was the Event Coordinator and Manager.

She moved to Nashville in 2018 to join the Rambler team and help with the business. Her title of Community Manager is all-encompassing, though her focus is connecting with potential speakers and guests, as well as website design and social media management.

You’ll see her at the events running around making sure everything is going smoothly, taking a million pictures, and probably cracking a joke or two.

You can reach her directly at for any questions, comments, or you just want to chat. She’s not shy and loves to talk!
