About Karen

Here are some of my favorite things…

many of these are in my office where I can see them frequently.

Each has special meaning to me.

Perhaps they will help you get to know me better…

(Mouse-over for my “notes”)

When I’m learning about something, I like to start with the Big Picture, getting clear about its purpose.

Then I look closely at the pieces and their connections and how they work together and contribute to the whole.

As I do this, I see patterns and possibilities. I also see missing pieces and the what if’s…

I like to work with people collaboratively.

I want to understand CAUSE

– not in a “Who’s to blame?” way

– but in a “If we change this, will the result be different?
Will it be better?
Will the new result be worth the effort it took to make the change?”
