Planning your event or travel needs with a nurse's personal touch.

Hello, my name is Melissa D. Hickey RN. I have been planning events and weddings for the past 15 years. I have always enjoyed working with people and making people happy. So, my obvious first career choice was to go to college to become a registered nurse 14 years ago. I have also enjoyed being around people celebrating at parties and events. With that being said, I planned my first event, a 300 guest wedding at the tender of 16! Guests were so impressed with my professionalism and work at such a young age, that I was sought after to plan numerous events including weddings, birthday parties, and many more.

Over the years I have planned and coordinated many weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, adult and children’s birthday parties, funeral gatherings, promotional celebrations, corporate and private holiday parties, retirement parties, college and graduation parties, fund raisers, day and extended trips, baby showers, corporate and private pot-luck parties, jewelry parties, book club parities, and military going overseas parties. Since I have been a registered nurse for 14 years, I have incorporated and utilized a merit of skills I have perfected in my nursing practice such as paying close attention to detail and being able to assess the entire picture so that I may help supersede my client's expectations. I will keep in contact with my clients as often as need be to keep them in the loop so that they are constantly aware of our progress. I am forthcoming and work will work diligently with each and every one of my clients to make certain that their needs and wishes are being fulfilled. If my clients have a question or concern I am only a phone call away. I give my clients the personal attention they need and deserve. Allow me to do the same for you!
