After she returned to the Netherlands in 2007, she worked in the media industry for companies including JCDecaux and DPG Media. Additionally, she modeled in tv- and online commercials, was co-host on the radio, presented and hosted events. 

Her personality is enthusiastic and passionate, stands for quality, integrity and respect. Her goal is to encourage corporate professionals to understand their true value by creating their Personal Brand. People feel more confident once they crafted their authentic Personal Brand. 

She traveled solo around the world where she fed her hunger for curiosity and knowledge. Karen enjoys learning new cultures, meeting inspiring people and investing in personal growth. 

In 2019, she left her corporate job and traveled three months around the world. Ending her journey in New York, she was able to encourage entrepreneurs with their personal strategies. It wasn't until later that a friend said; “Karen, this is Personal Branding." that she found her next calling. When she returned to the Netherlands, her Personal Branding agency was born. 

Empowering women is what she strives for and uses her voice to encourage women to understand their value.
