Karen combines two skills that are rarely seen together: a qualification in accounting, and an artistic mindset. Originally qualifying as a Certified Public Accountant in the States, Karen moved to Scotland in 2001, where she worked for and with accountancy firms as well as running an international wedding photography business. In 2012, she set up The Profitable Firm to help accountants with marketing: and over the years the business has become the creative agency that it is today.
Karen may have an American accent, but with over 16 years in the UK and dual British-American citizenship, she speaks both languages. This comes in handy since PF works with accountants all over the globe. She lives and works from Scotland, and speaks regularly for organisations such as Xero, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), BKR International, AccountingWeb, and Accountex.
Karen is fuelled by daily walks in the Scottish countryside, her faith and love for God, and copious amounts of strong black coffee. Not necessarily in that order.
