Karen is a coalition builder, a skilled facilitator, and most importantly, an empathetic listener who strives to understand diverse points of view. Her ability to bring organizations and coalitions together to make actionable change is unparalleled. 

Ryan Stockstrom
Board President of CornerStone Community and Youth Center 

Karen's abilities to gather and work with people of all different backgrounds and bring them together for a common goal is amazing.  Add in her abilities of team leading, granting writing, and networking skills, and she is an all-around community shaping power house!

Penny Kagigibi
Indigenous Becker County Resident

Karen is unique, unusual and a gift to our community. Karen has  pushed herself to be a Not-Mainstream ally with BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, People-of-Color). Karen’s words and actions come from a healthy place with inherent respect for all involved and she listens and responds to preferences and recommendations.

Nancy Jost
Director of Early Childhood at West Central Initiative 

When I met Karen about a year ago, I felt like I had found a hidden gem. Karen is organized, dependable, smart, a good listener and learner, and easy to work with.  I would feel like I was in good hands if I were looking for a consultant and came across Karen.
