The Team



TERRI EAVES HAS OVER 13 years experience in the event industry. Holding a degree in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design, she joined the event field working for two DMC's, operating dine-arounds, tours, ground transportation, meet & greets and receptions. She focused the last of those years on VIP events for clients including Bank of America, Nissan, Toyota and ExxonMobil. In 2008, Terri opened Bash.

Terri has planned numerous events and worked with various clients - from honorary dinners with members of Congress, and corporate award dinners, to destination welcome parties for associations. She has an admiration for seeing everything come together at an event and the controlled chaos behind the scenes - rental trucks unloading, florists tucking in stems that have loosened during transit, and the catering captain briefing his team.

Terri has maintained relationships with the most esteemed partners in the industry, building a reputation and crediting Bash as one of the most prominent and well-respected event planning firms in the DC Metro Area.


Lead Event Producer

JOYCE KNOER OZTURK HAS over 8 years experience in the event industry. Prior to joining Bash, she was an Assistant Account Executive at one of DC's leading caterers, and the Associate Director of Production for a local event planning company. Some of her clients included American Red Cross, Pentagon Memorial Fund, Texas State Society and American Kidney Fund.

She followed these positions working at two non-profits serving as a Program and Event Coordinator - fundraising, planning and producing all internal and external events including high-level meetings and VIP dinners.

Her portfolio ranges from private events and non-profit galas to major conferences and special events. She has had the pleasure of working with philanthropists, government agencies and celebrity performers.

She is passionate about the detail-oriented side of event planning and logistics, but also lives for the creative process and thrives on the endless possibilities when building an event from the ground up.
