​EVENT SALES TEAM

JESSICA PFRANGER
Director of Event Sales
Contact Jessica

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, home of the Louisiana Hayride, Jessica Pfranger was dancing to country music albums before she could walk. Naturally, she was drawn to Music City. After finishing her degree in Public Relations and working as an event coordinator for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Shreveport, Jessica found that she loved both non-profit work and special events; blending the two at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum was a perfect fit. In 2006, Jessica and her husband moved to Nashville where she immediately began working at the museum as a sales coordinator and has since been promoted to director of event sales. Jessica is a member of the Tennessee Society of Association Executives and the Tennessee Chapter of Meeting Professionals International Board of Directors. When not selling one of Nashville’s premier event spaces, Jessica can be found spending time with her husband Brad and their two children, Scarlett and James.
