Featured Work

I have worked with Karen for years on a variety of projects, including long- and short-form interview- and research-based articles, quick-turn ad and headline creation for a major healthcare campaign, and an ongoing long-term assignment with a leading newspaper. She is consistent, reliable, professional, and personable, putting clients at ease and going above and beyond to deliver excellence in every situation. Karen is awesome! I try to convince her to do every project that comes through because she is my favorite!

I truly enjoyed working with Karen. Attitude is everything, and she has it in spades. She is smart, has great ideas and knows how to execute them. If she has no prior experience with a subject, she works hard to get up to speed. She handles revisions with grace, and she comes up with ideas for solving problems, which makes her a great collaborator. She’s a real pleasure to work with, and I’d be delighted to work with her again.

Karen is among the finest reporters with whom I have worked. I save the most complex assignments for her: No subject is too complex for Karen. She keeps in close contact when necessary, and she consistently demonstrates the flexibility needed for any daily news publication focused intently on enterprise news. She delivers without fail the delicate mix of clarity, brevity and precision I seek from my top guns.

Karen was always extremely detail-oriented, punctual about deadlines, open to editing suggestions, and in general a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any assignment or position.
