About Karen

I have 18 years of experience in recruiting, mostly as a third party recruiter and some as an internal corporate recruiter. I started out in the engineering field, then went into the market research and sales industry, on to accounting and finance, and for the last 8+ years I've been in the information technology field. I have experience working closely with both candidates and hiring authorities at all levels, in multiple industries and size companies. I enjoy helping both sides and thrive on making connections and a great match.

On a personal note, I love animals, good wine and beer, traveling, reading, good shows, outdoor activities, and spending time with family and friends.
