Aimee Jacobson

Owner, President

Aimee started Just For Her Expo Inc. in 2008, after selling aimeej keepsake albums, a high end line of keepsake products.  Prior to her entrepreneurial itch, Aimee lived in San Francisco and worked for Gap, Inc. as Old Navy’s Events and Communications Director. After the birth of her first son Alex, she packed her bags with husband Nick, baby, dog and cat and moved halfway across the U.S. to Kansas City in 2001.

Currently, she continues to run the Just For Her Event and Chick Events and owns  Cityguide Marketing, a boutique marketing and branding firm. Her passion for helping small businesses grow and supporting the #shopsmall movement continually motivates her to create new event concepts!  When she can pull herself away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching her two boys play sports, cheering on the Chiefs and Sporting KC, cooking, relaxing and fishing at their lake house and sharing good food, a coffee or glass of red wine with her husband & friends.
