The Team

Mary O'Mealia

Founder/Lead Dog Walker

A memorable shared experience is the goal of every event, and Mary is proud to have helped create many such experiences during the more than twenty-five years of O'Mealia Signature Events. Whether arranging a small dinner party or organizing a multi-million-dollar benefit concert, Mary's success in organizing incredible events stems from her passion for innovation, a devotion to details large and small, and a genuine love of bringing people together.

Mary has a vast range of event designing experience, from theatre outings to client dinners to sales conferences. She also has been extremely successful crafting non-profit events that have grossed from $100,000 to $2 million. Mary is proud to say that most of her clients come from word of mouth and almost all return for repeat business.

Mary's enthusiasm for meeting new people pushes her to travel and learn about different cultures. She has a passion for languages and is fluent in Spanish. A lover of animals and nature, Mary also enjoys spending time outdoors with her horses and dogs. Mary graduated with a bachelor's degree from St. Lawrence University.
