Meet The Team

If you’re interested in hosting an event at a Fathom Gallery venue, we think it’s important that you know who you’ll be working with (that’s us!) since we’ll be collaborating with you throughout the planning process. Before we dive into introductions, we wanted to highlight a few of our top values and priorities as a venue management team:

Responsiveness: This is a big one for us! We never want a client to feel like they’re being “ghosted,” so we make sure we’re staffed properly to ensure a speedy response for all inquiries and client questions. We’ve implemented our own “24-hour rule” for responding to emails, and we take it very seriously (i.e., Meg is convinced she will need to hide Emily’s cell phone and laptop from her during her own wedding weekend).

Fun: Events are supposed to be a good time, and we want our personalities to reflect that! The Fathom Gallery team prides themselves in creating an atmosphere that is inviting, lively, and not stuffy.

Relationships: Fostering authentic relationships with both our clients and our venue partners is important to us, and we strive to make personal connections with everyone that comes through our doors. Forming friendships with our clients and vendors makes our job even more enjoyable, so that’s always the goal. Fun fact: Meg and Emily have been friends since third grade and are still going strong!

Now that we’ve outlined our principles as a group, please meet the individual faces that make up the Fathom Gallery team:

Emily Magee

Director of Events

Emily began working for Fathom Gallery 14th Street back in 2013 as an intern, and now manages all of the Fathom Gallery venues. Having overseen over 1,000 weddings, birthday parties, corporate receptions (the list goes on!), Emily knows exactly how to ensure a successful event. Her go-getter personality and attention to detail are perfect for the events industry and invaluable to the Fathom Gallery team. Emily has worked diligently over the last few years expanding Fathom Gallery’s portfolio to keep up with client needs and provide a venue that is perfect for each client’s vision!

A little more about Emily:

Graduate of: Saint Michael’s College, VT

How she spends her days off: Golfing, hitting up the tennis courts, shopping, and chasing around her adorable (and rambunctious!) nieces 

Favorite travel destinations: Austria, Switzerland, Italy, or anywhere else that you can see the Alps!

How she’d describe herself in 3 words: Hardworking, supportive, organized   

Favorite thing about working in the events industry: Seeing how each client uses our venue as a blank canvas and transforms it based on their unique vision! Watching the space come to life and then seeing our clients have a great time with their guests is the absolute best!

Meg Haverinen

Marketing and Events Manager

As the Fathom Gallery Event Management business continued to grow in 2021 with the grand opening of Fathom Gallery Georgetown, Meg left her corporate job to join the events world and never looked back! From the initial site visit up until day-of support, Meg’s goal is to make sure each client has a seamless experience with planning their event at Fathom Gallery and has a fabulous time on day-of.


A little more about Meg:

Graduate of: Providence College, RI

How she spends her days off: Long walks around the city, checking out new cocktail bars, unwinding with a bad reality TV show, or *trying* to improve her golf game

Favorite travel destinations: Cape Cod, MA, Charleston, SC, or Italy (specifically Tuscany for all of the wine and pasta)

How she’d describe herself in 3 words: Empathetic, genuine, and funny

Favorite thing about working in the events industry: Building relationships with our clients while working with them leading up to their event! I also love going through the wedding galleries we receive from our photographers and getting to see every special moment from the big day!

Theresa is the owner of Convatta Events, a local DC event management business that specializes in weddings and social/corporate gatherings. While she may not technically be a Fathom Gallery employee, we absolutely love working with her, so we have claimed her as one of our own!

A little more about Theresa:

Graduate of: Lake Forest College, IL

How she spends her days off: Spending the day playing outside with her daughter, 2 dogs, and husband! Or binging television with a nice glass of wine…

Favorite travel destinations: Sun Valley, Idaho or really any ski village in the winter.

How she’d describe herself in 3 words: Determined, quick-thinker, and friendly

Favorite thing about working in the events industry: Every day and every event is different. I love working with clients and learning about their personalities through the process then seeing their vision come to life.



During our busy seasons, we rely on Amanda as our trusty, always smiling catch-all. Amanda has been an amazing addition to the Fathom Gallery team since joining in 2022 and handles several tasks that are essential leading up to a successful event. She also handles event oversight on day-of, so if you’re hosting an event on Fathom she might become your go-to girl!


And everyone else that helps support Fathom Gallery to keep things running smoothly.

The Fathom Gallery team also consists of day-of support coordinators, event interns, designers, and a crew of contractors that help with all of the odds and ends to make our venues flourish. There’s always a full team behind the scenes making the event magic happen! 

Thanks for stopping by, and we look forward to hosting a wonderful event with you!


The Fathom Gallery Team


We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at Fathom Gallery Georgetown, and could not recommend the venue more for any events. The space is a beautiful urban oasis, and the amount of love and care that has gone into planning and designing the gallery is so evident. Fathom is a beautiful, innovative space with so many touches and details which make it special. Emily and Meg were phenomenal contacts for us--they are an incredibly organized team and manage everything efficiently and professionally. If you're thinking about booking a wedding there, do it!



The Fathom Gallery 14th Street provided such a uniquely charming setting in the heart of DC to host our wedding ceremony and reception, and we could not have been more thrilled with our choice of venue! Both the indoor space and the patio provided a beautiful backdrop to bring our vision to life in a way that made it feel like it was truly designed just for us. The layout at Fathom allows for so much flexibility for any couple to create the event of their dreams, and Meg + the Fathom team were very responsive and helpful as we made our wedding dream a reality. We opted for an intimate ceremony (approx. 30ppl) on the patio followed by a larger reception (approx. 90ppl) using the full space, and it turned out beautifully! Not only did we have the best day ever, but all of our guests raved about how inviting the space felt and how much fun they had. We would highly recommend the Fathom Gallery to any couple looking to host their wedding ceremony, reception or both!



Meg and Emily helped bring our dream DC wedding to life! Having grown up and dated in the DC area, we wanted to find a place that represented our backgrounds and relationship, but wasn't run of the mill... enter Fathom Gallery. We initially were interested in the 14th Street location, but given our headcount, needed a bigger space. Luckily, the Georgetown location opened a few months before our wedding, and we felt like scored something funky and different! The space itself is right below Compass Coffee, and right by the iconic Georgetown sign. We loved the dreamy courtyard (perfect for an intimate ceremony or cocktail hour) & the indoor space is spacious and modern. The gallery will frame ten pictures of your choice so we were able to feature our favorite engagement photos (and reduce extraneous decor). Meg and Emily were extremely responsive and professional throughout the whole process. They offered great vendor referrals (specifically our wedding planner) and remained our contacts from beginning to end. We would love the chance to have another event there in the future – highly recommend!



We got married at Fathom Gallery 14th Street early this spring and were so pleased with our experience! Emily and Meg were great to work with and were always super quick with responding to our (many!) questions leading up to our big day. We went with a caterer from their preferred list and we were extremely happy with how everything came together. We’d definitely recommend this venue to a friend and we wish we could relive our wedding day all over again!



Meg and Emily were the perfect team to work with for a last-minute corporate event. Time was of the essence for my group and the Fathom team was responsive, professional, and quick to help us lock in event details. The gallery is a stunning blank slate and really allowed us to be creative with our design ideas. Could not recommend more!



We chose the Fathom Gallery 14th Street for our 50+ person wedding reception and we could not have been happier with our decision. From setting up the initial visit, to coordinating logistics, to walkthroughs and day of coordination, Meg and Emily were amazing to work with and made the entire experience much easier and more enjoyable. The confidence the team has in terms of helping couples make decisions regarding the configuration of the space exemplifies the quality of service you can expect from Fathom Gallery. We cannot thank the Fathom Gallery staff enough for all of their efforts throughout the wedding planning process. Meg and her team went above and beyond to make accommodations for us and even stepped in to help fix some malfunctions on the day of our reception. We would highly recommend the Fathom Gallery for any couples looking to have a small, intimate wedding reception.
