I am thrilled to be a part Perception by Anna, assisting with weddings and events! I find great joy in taking care of the needs of others, especially on an important day, and hope to get to serve you in the future! I am the owner of KLF & Company, a fundraising and event management company, and have almost 20 years of experience in the industry. Clients have included nonprofits, private sector businesses and families, as well as political candidates/organizations at the local, state, and national level.
Early in my career, I spent almost five years in Washington, DC where I worked for Advantage, Inc. as an Account Executive providing fundraising and event management services for high profile political clientele. I also spent two years as an Associate Director at Orr Associates, Inc., serving nonprofit organizations by coordinating production and fundraising efforts for major events.
Originally from east Tennessee (go Vols!), I have a B.S. in Political Science with a minor in French from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, as well as a M.A. in Political Management with a concentration in fundraising from The George Washington University. I also have completed the Arkansas Association of Fundraising Professionals’ certificate program and was proud to be named to Arkansas Business’ “40 Under 40” in 2011.
While neither my husband Kevin Niehaus and I are native to Arkansas, I’ve lived here for the last 15 years and have fallen in love with the state and its people. We love Little Rock and are glad to be raising our two little girls, Eliza Rose and Emmerson, and one furry child, Eleanor the pug, here in this great city we now call home.
Katy and her husband Kevin Niehaus also own The Happy Glamper, which provides glamping and party services using beautiful bell tents with stylish decor. Learn more about The Happy Glamper below.
