Karen bravely goes towards the areas of business that others tend to avoid, rolls up her sleeves, and addresses issues head on to achieve higher levels of leadership confidence and performance.

Karen loves working with courageous leaders that dare to go where they have not gone before; leaders that want to achieve more for themselves, for their businesses, and for the people in them.

She specialises in organisational performance and leadership design that focuses on improving the results delivered by companies and individuals.  Recognising the interconnected nature of strategy and execution, Karen assesses organisational performance and designs programs, based on those assessments, to improve alignment, accountability and sustainability through training, coaching and consulting initiatives.

With a strong background in strategic and operational leadership, Karen has successfully managed teams through complex projects and organizational evolutions.  She helps teams assess situations, address challenges, and execute plans, while providing managers with guidance and tools to help them perform at their very best.

Previously Karen worked with DMS for 9+ years.  In her role as Senior Vice President, Karen served as a leader of leaders building operational efficiency. Karen graduated on the Dean’s List at Dalhousie University, in Nova Scotia, Canada, with a Bachelor of Commerce degree.  She continues her pursuit of education and personal growth through her Project Management Professional designation, Coaching Certification, and her leadership in Human Dynamics education.

Originally from Canada, Karen lives in Grand Cayman and maintains an active role in the community, using her skills to benefit Rotary and Big Brothers Big Sisters. When she isn’t working or reading, you can likely find Karen at the gym, walking the dogs, and even singing karaoke now and then.

“Karen uses her excellent communication and leadership skills to translate strategy into action. She intuitively senses gaps, and proactively identifies how best to fill them. In short, Karen creates successful teams
that everyone wants to join.”
Nancy Ewing, President, Brac Informatics
“I'm not sure I know exactly how to describe what Karen does. What I do know is that it is rare and extremely valuable to work with someone who can combine business skills, empathy and overall value the way she does. Karen operates with mutual faith, trust and respect and that is a refreshing way to do business. I give Karen a 100% recommendation.”
