About Me

When I was a little kid, I always dreamed that I would develop a super power. Now, as an adult, I realize I did gain a special skill. My name is Joanna Klatzman Higgison and I can organize anything! Whether faced with an unruly bridal party, a gaggle of vendors, or a pile of supplies, I am here to help. As a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) with over ten years of event planning and hospitality experience in the DC area, I come prepared with the knowledge and skills to make your event planning process smooth and fun. I have created events ranging from embassy open houses and cooking competitions to policy meetings and black tie galas. Of all of these, I have always loved weddings and other personal life events. There is nothing better than bringing the people you love and who have supported you together for a celebration of a new adventure.

Outside of my event planning, I am co-coach of the George Washington University Fencing Club (thus the Touché) and the proud mama of a whole house of fur babies.
