Jewella Sookrit

Founder

Jewella is the heart and soul of Jewel Events! Jewella holds a degree in Criminology, has a background in project management and became a certified 'Wedding Consultant and Coordinator' and 'Destination Wedding Coordinator' through the Wedding Planning Institute of Canada in January 2011. Jewella's love and passion for event planning started long before her professional training in this field. She started planning events at a young age and carries 12+ years of diverse experience in the hospitality industry. It is her passion for helping making people's dreams and visions come true which led her to establish Jewel Events. When she's not busy leading the team to success, you can catch Jewella sipping on a colourful drink by the beach on a sunny island oasis. 

Puja Bagri, Ph.D

Coordinator 

Puja has been involved with Jewel Events since it’s conception; providing support whenever and wherever it’s needed! Although her professional background in science and research might seem far removed from the hustle and bustle of event planning, when you think about it, it’s actually the perfect match because what you get is an organized, thoughtful and detail-oriented coordinator. No matter the task at hand, Puja will always go above and beyond; whether it be helping plan your next event or cheering on Toronto sports teams, she always gives it nothing less than a hunnit. In her spare time, you can find her listening to true crime podcasts while exploring the outdoors, teaching kids about the magic of science, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or jetting off to learn about new cultures and people. Just don’t invite her to your next game's night because she hates losing and will take things way too seriously, since "playing for fun" does not exist in her world.

Athena Narsingh, J.D

Coordinator 

Meet Athena! When she's not coordinating weddings, she runs a law practice in Toronto. Event planning has always been her passion. She loves meeting new people, and helping people navigate through one of the most beautiful days of their life. Likes: chocolate, pizza, chocolate, hakka food...did she mention chocolate? Spending time with friends and family and binge watching crime shows, but who doesn't? Dislikes: chicken on pizza and Mondays.

Meet Ashley! Ashley has a degree in Sociology and currently works in Wealth Management. Her passion for Event Planning stems from her love of all things weddings and eagerness to help others any way she can.

Remneek Kisana, MSW

Coordinator 

This is Remneek! Remneek fell in love with wedding planning when she first laid eyes on Jenifer Lopez in the Wedding Planner, sounds cliche but she always imagined herself as a planner. Her career has included working as a social worker and therapist with many different communities. Her social work career prepared her well to be a planner, in her ability to reduce stress, evoke a sense of calm, communicate with multiple stake holders, and stay organized. There is nothing like having a therapist and wedding coordinator in one! Outside of planning weddings Remneek enjoys watching the Raptors, re-watching the office for the 100th time, playing Volleyball, or an intense game of charades.
