Karen is a true visionary. She has a knack for putting together programs and people that make a difference in people lives and helps them to grow their businesses at the same time. To work with Karen is a true honor and I feel truly blessed to have met her.
I met Karen at the 2008 Opportunity Green where (in between running the conference and attending every session) she carved time out of her busy schedule to recognize Free Range Studios and share one of our films with some fellow attendees on a spare laptop near the registration table. That first introduction to Karen was indicative of how she treats everyone she meets; with enthusiasm, focus, and a genuine interest. She's passionate about affecting positive change through Opportunity Green and does so by identifying potential partnerships and connecting the right sustainable and socially responsible businesses. Karen's energy and engagement with the green community sets the bar for a true triple bottom line business model, and I would encourage everyone to attend Opportunity Green in 2009 where you will have the chance to witness the exciting, progressive collaborations that take place firsthand!
Karen's Opportunity Green conference was literally the best business conference I went to all last year. Karen is a very warm, intelligent individual and is now a true leader in the environmental movement. I highly recommend you spend time with her and get involved with the conference in whatever way you can.
Karen is a fantastic organizer! She has tremendous energy, great connections, and knows how to fill a room with amazing people. I truly appreciate Karen's dedication to life and the planet.
I have appreciated working with Karen as my account manager and point of entry for all DataDirect Networks products and services. In her professional contacts she proved over and over that she would give the extra service needed to win a contract or to sustain a relationship, in a personal context she is a warm & enjoyable person, full of laughter and she always had a very customer focused mindset.
Karen is an incredibly driven, creative and inspirational mover, shaker and connector. Bringing visions to life can be a challenge for every entrepreneur and Karen's approach provides opportunities to realize these visions bring them to the next level...and have fun doing it.
Karen is a force in the green movement in Los Angeles. She organizes like no one I know in Southern California. The most impressive trait of Karen's however is her simple peacefulness, her presence and kindness. It has been a pleasure to meet you.
The success of the sustainability movement will be achieved through communication and education. One of our cities best communicators is Karen. Her knowledge, energy and spirit is inspiring. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and reach out for others. I was delighted to be involved with Karen and Opportunity Green and value our relationship with deep regard.
Karen's work with Acquarella has been all about integrity and ethic. We have a mutually shared mindset on making sure that our "walk is our talk" and I sincerely appreciate her enthusiasm in her efforts.
Karen's enthusiasm and strong sense of connection with her communities is a powerful combination. I always enjoy working with Karen and look forward to further collaboration with her and the team she has built at Opportunity Green.
Karen is a professional fireball of inspiration, dedication, connection and possibility. She's creating a profound and lasting impact, a legacy, in the area of sustainability and never ceases to amaze me when she manifests miracles with jaw-dropping ease and fun. It's an absolute pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend getting involved in Opportunity Green.
