Aundrea Goodwin is known throughout her industry as a perfectionist, a visionary and an advocate for service above all else.
Her journey began in her grandmother’s kitchen. Cooking from scratch, Goodwin gained an appreciation for doing things right, for minding the details and for bringing joy to those around her — a mindset that would serve her through the rest of her life.
After high school, Aundrea joined the Army, where she served as a dental assistant. She then earned her undergraduate degree in organizational psychology and began a career in human resources, where she learned the value of teamwork and consistency. Over 17 years in the field, she assembled capable experts into teams greater than the sum of their parts.
Then, destiny called. Aundrea tapped into her love of cooking once again and began sharing her dishes with friends. Before long, her cuisine blossomed into a thriving catering business. But Aundrea wasn’t done there. She sensed an opportunity to use her organizational skills to weave catering into something bigger: a seamless event planning experience. And JP Events was born.
Today, Aundrea is proud to lead a team of passionate artisans, each like the perfect ingredient in the perfect dish. Working together, she and her team deliver memorable experiences in Nashville and beyond.
“I could not do what I do if I didn’t truly love it. I love food, people, service. I love seeing the joy on the faces of our clients when things go better than they expected.”
