Jamie Greenspan kicked off her career at a top Los Angeles talent agency where she spent much of her time finding the perfect gifts for their roster of A-list clients. After leaving the entertainment industry, she worked in fashion before finding her true calling at Evite. Creative, particular and chic, Jamie won’t settle until she finds the perfect gifts – for others, or herself.
The 2012 Giftees are underway and you’re probably wondering what the panel of judges is & who they are, right? It’s up to You, the public, to nominate your favorite gifts of the year and to ultimately decide on the winners. But, when nominations end, the esteemed judges help select the Top 10 products in each category before handing it back over to You to determine the winners. Well, I’m going to be highlighting one judge at a time from the panel of respected bloggers, business women, and social media mavens who know a thing or two about what makes a great gift. Enjoy!
