Specialties Event planning services in Northern Virginia and the DC metro area History Established in 2013 Events by Katie was started by a brother and sister. Their love of all things social, keen eye for business, and attention to detail led them, quite by surprise, to discover a career they were excited about — a welcome reprieve from desk jobs that felt like a chore instead of a passion. Meet the Business Owner:
Katie K. Unlike many people, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do with my life after college. I worked mostly in the government and for defense contractors, and while they were perfectly decent jobs, I was never really excited about them. One day, in the midst of planning a going-away party for a friend, I realized that I had already been doing my dream job for years without even knowing it — event planning. A quick call to my brother, who was also looking to find something more in life than being trapped in an office, yielded the beginnings of a business: Events by Katie. Let us plan your next event; you’ll never find anyone more passionate about making your gathering a smashing success.
