Madeline Jonah
Event Support

Details coming together for the event is truly the magical part! Being a part of the onsite team, I get to see all the levels of engagement that each event holds. As a post-secondary recruiter, I always like to tell students to find their home community. Here at Tycoon it is definitely a home community with people that will intentionally engage with you and bring all the details together for a beautiful event.

Kassidy skinner
Event Support

For me, it all began with my love for organization. Sticky notes, color coordination, and details – I love it all! I have worked in all aspects of events including time in florals, décor, balloons, catering, venue coordination, and logistics. My favorite part of events is being able to think creatively and big picture, then reign it in to focus on all of the details that bring an idea to life. I do have to say that the best details are the ones that involve snacks or wine.

With over 10 years of experience in the events industry, ranging from small intimate gatherings to major festivals, and everything from livestock management to the finer details of floral design, Nikki brings a diverse background and approach to event execution.
