Karen joined IABC Los Angeles when she was freelancing and looking for guidance on her next career move, and ultimately found much more than she bargained for: a social media role on the board and some lifelong friendships.

She holds an M.A. in sociology and an undergraduate degree in journalism, and has worked across several industries including entertainment, financial services and consumer products. She can be reached on LinkedIn.

“I put time into IABCLA because it’s an organization that is focused on education more than anything else, and from that evolves truly genuine connections with other communicators who love what they do.”
