About Me

Jeanne Marquis

Once upon a time, I fell in love with having—and planning—parties.  Whether it was  organizing the neighborhood lemonade stand at age 5, or planning my  parents' 50th anniversary party three decades later, party planning is simply in my blood.  My friends still call me Monica from Friends because I absolutely MUST be the hostess!                

This  penchant for party planning led me to a 10-year career at KQED Public Broadcasting where I was the Director of Major Donor Events.  Call me crazy,  but I loved tending to every event detail as well as the challenge of creating fun and memorable moments.                                                                                            

Now, I run Events by Jeanne.  I’m a detail addict, a self professed ‘event  geek' and I would be honored to help plan your next event.  Given my vast experience in the industry, I can help you make the big decisions about venues and vendors—and all the little decisions in between. 

Whether  it's a simple birthday party, a corporate function, a lovely wedding or a fundraising event,  I can help create the event you've envisioned and execute every detail!
