“Karen is a consummate professional in everything she does.  Since we are a rapidly growing food business, we really needed to get our message out and connect more with consumers. Karen created a comprehensive PR plan for us with a detailed action plan and clear milestones.  The results have been better than expected, and we have exceeded all of our original objectives.  I highly recommend her.”

Her ability to balance strategy with project management and ‘brass tacks’ is enviable — all while effectively working with many section leaders to help us align on meeting goals.”
