Karin is committed to the fundamental strategic meetings management programs (SMMP) model that captures all meeting-related costs and reports them comprehensively and accurately to management. The SMMP discipline is very important, as few large organizations know what they have actually spent on meetings, or whether that money was well invested. The Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) financial reporting requirements and tightened budgets are key to the success of an organization’s strategic meetings management program.

Karin excels at improving client ROO/ROI while maintaining or reducing expenditures. Working diligently with clients’ internal teams, partners and sponsors, Karin produces outstanding and above-expectation results for all participants. Her proven abilities in staff leadership, training, development and optimization along with her commitment to quality are exceptional.


Karin is a member of i-Meet Talent Bench and PlannerNet, and is a certified Project Manager and certified Medical Meeting Planner.

Karin holds a Bachelor of Science in Business/ Global Business Management and an Associate of Arts in accounting from the University of Phoenix (2012).
