Southern California born and raised, Jessica Franklin moved extensively before finding herself working as a wedding coordinator at a venue in the Smokey Mountains of Knoxville, Tennessee. Three years later, she relocated to San Francisco and almost immediately began working as an assistant at Dreams on a Dime. After two years of learning about the local venues & vendors, Jessica moved up as an Event Specialist.
In her off time, she loves spending time with her cat, Vince, and is constantly exploring the eclectic offerings of San Francisco with her boyfriend.

AND, WE COULDN'T DO WITHOUT OUR AMAZING ASSISTANTS:
Born and raised in Southern Oregon, Cierra headed out to Southern California after high school to attend California Lutheran University. There she studied International Business with a minor in International Relations. While in high school she studied abroad in Italy and returned there for her junior year at university.
After graduation, Cierra got her feet wet in the event world as the private banquet manager for several restaurants and realized her passion for event planning. When she relocated to San Francisco, she continued on the events path as a Private Events Coordinator for San Francisco City Hall then joined the team at Dreams on a Dime.
When she’s not working on events, she enjoys spending time with her family, exploring the Bay Area with her husband and their mini-Schnauzer, Jax, and is continually working on expanding and conquering the items on her bucket list.
After nearly 20 years experience working on all types of events in her native San Francisco Bay Area, Jessica started Dreams on a Dime in 2007 to use her skills and philosophies to benefit her clients. Whether it’s an intimate holiday dinner party, a fundraiser for a non-profit, or an elaborate wedding, Jessica's goal is to work with clients to create an event that they can feel prideful of and delighted with. Her strong organizational skills, ability to work under pressure, and problem solve allow clients to relax and enjoy their event. She's not embarrassed to admit that she can be a bit persnickety at times but, ultimately, it's the attention to detail that really shines through. At the end of the day, there is a tremendous feeling of joy and accomplishment knowing that she has assisted in creating exactly what the client wants.
When she's not working, Jessica is a regular fixture at the local thrift stores. She loves going to see live music & movies and isn't ashamed to just loaf around the house with her husband and their dogs, Izzy and Delilah, watching "Law & Order" marathons.
