Karen has been helping organizations tell their stories and achieve their business goals through strategic marketing/ communications/PR for more than 30 years. Her forte is taking complex concepts and distilling them into simple verbal/visual messaging. Based in Denver and managing client projects across the country, her work has received national recognition for strategy, efficacy, and creative execution. From the area’s largest hospital system to the nation’s biggest bank for rural cooperatives to the world’s top seed company, Karen’s experience also dips into start-ups, associations, and live entertainment/venue promotion.


Her sweet spot is large projects that require an integral working relationship with the client — co-creating a unique communications solution that reaches past previous benchmarks and into new means of capturing target audiences. Karen also relishes in forging alliances between unlikely partners — allowing each to extend the other’s awareness, reach, and budget.
