Sheila got her start at the famed Kelly’s Caribbean and Duval Beach Club (AKA Southernmost Beach) working her way up to the Director of Catering & Events and overseeing A Key West Affair Catering Company. During her nearly 10 years with the company she planned, designed and supervised wedding ceremonies and corporate events, directed food, beverage and floral, created venue designs and seamlessly coordinated vendors while always managing the events timing and flow. 

Coordinating and overseeing more than 1,200 events she was certain that she had found her calling. That led to her ownership of an event design service and rental company. There she was able to gain a unique perspective, interact and assist a vast number of industry professionals. The knowledge and extensive experience she gained from these endeavors was invaluable. It allows her to possess a well-rounded knowledge and understanding in every aspect of the industry and allows her to develop priceless relationships with vendors, venues and suppliers.    

Sheila knows how important every event is for her clients and makes it her goal to ensure every detail is executed flawlessly.  She uses her creativity to the highest potential and gives her Brides and Grooms the respect and one-on-one relationship they deserve. 

Pretty Chic Events is the culmination of all the experience, dedication and hard work it takes to become a professional wedding & event planner.

About Us

Things you don’t yet know about Sheila…

Getting to know my clients is one of the most beloved parts of my job.

So it’s only fair that you get to know me a little better too! 


Winter of 2017 brought the blessing of my sweet baby

girl, Jennifer.  Already overflowing my heart with love

and joy, her sweet smiles melt my heart more each day...

I love the outdoors and being on the water. I recently took up paddle boarding and I searched for one that had a cup-holder and was wide enough to fit both my dogs! Nothing beats floating around with the family onboard! 

I had a horse growing up and have never lost my love of riding. 

I lived on the infamous Duval Street in Key West Florida….What a show! If you’ve been lucky enough to spend time in Key West, you know what I’m taking about! 

Shopping is one of my favorite ways to spend time, but I am a bargain shopper at heart and I love a great deal! 

I took one of the bedrooms in my house and transformed it into a walk-in closet (yes, really). I arranged everything by color and style, yet I can never find anything to wear. 

I’m addicted to HBO… you will find Game of Thrones and The Newsroom on my DVR. 

I love to cook, but I must have a recipe to follow… 

I love my hometown: The Cincinnati Bengals, Skyline Chili, Montgomery Inn Ribs and Graeter’s Ice Cream! I wait all year for football season to roll around to cheer on my team - Go Bengals! 

I have a passion for traveling. I’ve explored Alaska and visited the Arctic Circle and I once sailed across the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to Greece…. Yep, I got sea-sick…. 

I adore snail mail. There’s nothing like receiving handwritten letter or package! 

I never imagined I would be a small dog kinda gal, but I am head over heels for my 2 Chihuahua’s, and a bonus is that I can (and often do) take them everywhere!

If I sound like the kind of girlfriend you would have, then give me a call or drop me an email and let’s get started today!
