Trained at the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Karen’s early professional experience includes the impeccability of Walt Disney Productions animation studio. Later, Karen established her own design studio where she licensed artistic images and greeting card products on a national scale with Enesco. In 2013, Karen embraced her commitment to remain out-of-box by completing her Internet Marketing Bachelors of Science degree and in 2014 her Masters in Public Relations.
“The Internet has changed how we do everything,” said Karen, “its imperative that you stay ahead of what is coming next, this is why getting my Internet Marketing degree was so important. SEO, CRM, Analytics, Social Media, videos, blogs and the importance of a business’s story and culture have never been more important. Business is about people and people buy products and services from businesses they trust. It’s pretty simple. As a marketer it’s absolutely vital to understand the value of each of these components and create a synergy between each piece for an organization.”
Over the years, Karen has blended her artistic and coaching skills to become a marketing leader and industry expert. In 1998, through inspiration and determination, Make It Happen marketing llc, was created. Since then, Karen has produced hundreds of successful branding, public relations and marketing campaigns.
