Jillian Tohber Leslie founded Catch My Party in 2009 with her husband, David, and together, they have grown it into the largest party ideas site on the web, with over 6 million page views per month. 

In 2015, Jillian and David built a popup to grow Catch My Party's social media followers. The popup worked so well, in 2016, they launched it as a separate company called MiloTree (named after their favorite tree in Hawaii), to help other entrepreneurs grow their email lists and social media followers (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest).

Jillian received her BA and MBA from Stanford University. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Jillian was a writer in Hollywood for ten years, writing movies and TV.

Jillian currently lives in Palo Alto, CA with her husband and ten year old daughter, Lainey. In her free time, Jillian likes to take photographs, travel, cook, and do yoga.

"I think the journey of being an entrepreneur is about not buying into your own hype and not buying into your own nightmare."
