With an extensive background as a managing editor, Karen sometimes describes herself as “Mother of Writers.” She earned her content marketing merit badge by landing over 1,800 pieces of press coverage for Grammarly in less than two years as a media relations consultant. Although she’s #TeamOxfordComma, she grudgingly learned to adapt to AP style.

A native of the Upper Midwest, Karen moved to the Seattle area in 2015. She loves exploring (and photographing) nature while walking her dog on the local trails and taking road trips across the glorious Pacific Northwest. During her downtime, you’ll find her playing keyboards and ukulele, composing music, and singing with a 120-person community chorus.

And these are a few of her favorite things.
