Karen has spent her almost 20-year career bringing together companies, organizations, and government stakeholders to align on common interests while protecting the environment. Karen previously worked as an Environmental Scientist for the U.S. EPA and as a Senior Consultant for RRS where she helped build The Recycling Partnership model. As one of the first hires at The Partnership, Karen has experience in all facets of the organization – from implementing community recycling grants to funder engagement. She currently leads The Partnership’s overall Corporate Engagement Strategy, which is actively building a coalition of external stakeholders to help catalyze the Circular Economy in the U.S.
An avid runner and very novice skier, Karen and her family have lived all over the country, but love their home in Colorado most.
