Meet Katarina Nordqvist
Katarina believes that shared experiences and open communication are key not only for self-improvement, but for building deeper connections with others. That belief is what brought her to Own The Room, where she helps produce public and private events around the world.
After studying Advertising and Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Katarina embarked on an impressive career in event planning. She’s organized events for Montclair State University, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, designers like Vera Wang and Mara Hoffman, and with the notable fashion PR firm People’s Revolution. Despite all of these brag-worthy accomplishments, one of Katarina’s proudest career moments was her work with Operation Reinvent, where she organized workshops to help women veterans bridge the transition from military to civilian life.
Thanks to her expert planning skills (and a love of trying new things), Katarina has traveled to over 20 countries. Whether she’s surprising her partner with a spontaneous trip to Paris or St. Lucia, or finding a new local neighborhood to explore, Katarina is constantly researching and planning exciting adventures. When she’s not jet-setting for work or play, this Miami native takes every opportunity she can to hop on a boat and enjoy the ocean.
