"Karen is a talented, creative, innovative designer and writer. The Foundation team depends on her again and again for competent, stellar work, meeting deadlines and always above and beyond what she is asked to do. We enjoy working with Karen. She understands and appreciates the collaborative nature of design work and is conscientious, driving towards the best product she can create. I delight in her work and am always excited to see her pieces. I am thrilled with the beautiful, elegant new Museum of Vision piece for major donor solicitation. WOW! Thank You!"

"Karen is a great project manager, handling a very long and arduous publishing process with great poise. She manages all details both big and small in a professional and competent manner.”
– Philip Goldworth, President/CEO, Detati Communications
"Karen managed the PR department for Dr. Martens, specializing in our connection to the music industry. The position required someone who was well connected, organized (as most of the music industry and bands were not) and motivated to gain maximum exposure for our brand. Karen excelled in all areas. She secured highly visible PR exposure with our CD Sampler program and sponsorship of the Everclear tour nationwide, among many other responsibilities. A task of this kind often takes a team of people in the field — Karen managed the available resources excellently. Her shoes were tough to fill when she moved to Asia."
– Jeffrey Scheid, VP Marketing/Sales Manager, Dr. Martens AirWair USA
"I have enjoyed working with [Karen] and how her courtesy, professionalism and always cheerful attitude has made my job a little bit easier. ...Fashion editors always need things 'yesterday' and Karen was always there for me and my entire staff ... and if she was unable to fill our requests to our specifications, she always came through with just the right things for us on her own. She is indeed a treasure!"
– Adrienne W., Accent Magazine & International Kids Fashion Show
"Karen was very thorough and efficient at overseeing the entire project [GusGus US tour PR/marketing], ensuring that each of the 25 tour markets were effectively covered. She was outstanding at following through with meeting deadlines and liaising with all the key parties involved with the project; this included promoters, retailers, media, distribution and the record label. Karen has excellent communication abilities, works well under pressure and has superior marketing and public relations skills."
