Alumna of George Mason University, Khatera worked for a Public Relations firm in Adams Morgan before working in the hospitality field. Her love for events started when she worked for a Chef in a luxury hotel learning in the fast-paced environment. It was there that she was exposed to a wide variety of special, corporate and government events. Desiring to understand how all the working parts contribute to a vision coming to fruition, she quickly rose in the ranks to become an event manager. After working in the hotel industry and later at an independent event company she created her own company Events by Khatera. 

When Khatera is not producing an event you can see her buried in her book, eating pb&j, volunteering in her community or chasing after her kids. She is a fitness enthusiast, runner, and rower.
