They have earned an enviable reputation for possessing an expertise in a particular field or arena. They are considered knowledgeable, credible and trustworthy. The thoughts and actions of these women influence the thoughts and actions of others. It is our distinct privilege to be able to introduce these remarkable women to the community."
During her more than 16 years in the accounting world, Karen has been the mentor for many accounting marketers and has been honored as one of Accounting Today's 100 Most Influential People, a Marketer of the Year by the Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) and was inducted into the AAM Hall of Fame in 2009.
