Owner and Event Planner, Lena Mercer, has more than 10 years experience planning events. Lena began her career working in public relations and corporate events. It was here that she honed her people and event skills.

Lena discovered her love for weddings when she planned her own nuptials. Then, when her child was born, her love grew to include other celebratory events. She enjoyed every minute of the planning process. Soon, family and friends approached her to plan birthday parties, anniversary parties, baby showers, and other celebrations. With her extensive event planning experience and love for parties, launching Lena’s Events to Remember was a natural step.

Lena was born and raised in Grants, New Mexico. She enjoys gardening, remodeling her home, and cooking. Her favorite past time, however, is spending time with the two men in her life….a supportive husband, James and their adorable son, AJ.
