Bio: Winnipeg show manager Jenn Tait has found herself between Winnipeg and Calgary her whole life. Although originally from Winnipeg, Jenn now lives in Calgary where she manages the Winnipeg Home Shows. After majoring in Marketing at Winnipeg’s Red River College, Jenn moved to Calgary to complete the Event Management program at Mount Royal University. After finishing the Event Management program, Jenn began her career with MPE, starting as an Admin and propelling her way to Sales and Operations Coordinator, Operations Manager and now, Winnipeg Show Manager. Jenn’s combination of detail-orientated precision, organization and sense of humour have made her a valuable member of the MPE team. When she’s not running the Winnipeg show, Jenn can be found scouring the city for a great deal on home decor or chasing after her dog Nessie, who is as needy as a small child.
OPERATIONS | SHOW ADMINISTRATOR
Bio: Shannon joins us from Minnesota with a marketing degree from St. Cloud State University where she played NCAA soccer. She moved to Calgary over two years ago and absolutely loves it! She came to #TeamPeg after working in Marketing
for Marble Slab Creamery and a tiny house company, where she was a feature participant in the Tiny Home Village at the Calgary and Edmonton Home + Garden Shows. Her experience of being on both sides of the shows combined with her organization, positive
attitude, and time management skills make her a great addition to MPE.
Design Tip: If you're a major fan of neutrals, like me, add some texture to give the space more dimension and life! This can be through pillows, rugs, and even wallpaper!

beaches within reach.This young lady is a power house in sales and a total team player. We couldn't be luckier to have her on our team and working as hard as she does for us and for our Exhibitors.
Design Tip: Pops of colour are important in your home to keep things interesting. It doesn't have to be drastic, a green blanket on the couch or a teal vase on your table can make such a difference.
