Karen is also an established spokesperson and engaging speaker on marketing, PR, photography, and social media topics. And she enjoys fielding freelance writing assignments for numerous Pennsylvania-based magazines. Click here for Celebrate Gettysburg magazine’s “Contributor Spotlight” interview with Karen.
The foundation of Karen’s career included nearly 20 years of award-winning experience in the media field. As a journalist working in television, radio, and newspaper, she developed an intuitive ability to listen, focus on message(s), and then craft engaging stories accompanied by visuals and/or audio. An additional 10 years of experience in the PR/Marketing field focused on tourism, events, the arts, entertainment, fundraisers and corporate events.
These experiences drive her current creative commitment to each of her clients’ stories, allowing her to share them with the public via award-winning and results-driven public relations and marketing campaigns.
