hi! I'm Leanne, It's nice to see you


I have always been a compulsive crafter/decorator/creative. I love to help turn great ideas and passions into a tangible thing.

I started The Joy Enthusiast as an event services company and I have been so humbled as it's grown and the people I have met along the way. I am in the business of taking a new or challenging project and making it happen! I live for the moments when we can look back and say “hey, we did that”. Wether its creating an intimate event to launch a brand, styling photo shoots for clients or consulting on a project that somehow got off the rails, I am here for it!

Since it all started with events, I am still about creating moments with intention and thoughtfulness. In the world we live in, there are a lot of things that can distract us from what is really important to us. To me personal connection is more important than ever. I am in the business of helping to clear the clutter in the creative process so people can enjoy the moments that matter, whether digital or in person. Whether it's on the dance floor, a social feed or printed out on paper, I want to help with the process and execution. 

Over the course of my career I have been able to pitch and launch many projects. A few I am incredibly proud of are Columbus Donut Festival, RGF Talk Series and Columbus CoffeeFest. I have worked with brands such as Concur, Combustion Brewery & Taproom on special projects.

When it comes to creative challenges, I am like a mad scientist: I will try anything once. If I'm not behind the scenes of an event, I am usually in the kitchen trying a new recipe or in my garden covered in dirt. Most of my hobbies involved trying to bring the world around me a little bit more joy. 

Interested in working together or just want to say hi? I would love to hear from you!
