July 2018

After attending several excellent WIT-NC events in Fall 2017, Karen joined WIT-NC in January 2018. Karen is in the MBA, Corporate Risk and Compliance program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (formerly the Monterey Institute of Int’l Studies).

She has a B.A. in Linguistics with High Honors from University of Illinois, Urbana, where she wrote a concordance program for corpus linguistic analysis of Old English texts for her thesis. She studied French at the University of Geneva in Switzerland, German at U of I and the Goethe Institute in Germany, and taught English in Japan. She holds a J.D. from Rutgers Law School, where she worked at the environmental law clinic and an adoption law firm and enjoyed courses in international comparative law and international business and economics law and policy. She is a member of the Texas Bar.

Karen managed a tax center for the IRS VITA tax program at Foundation Communities in Austin, TX, then practiced general law and managed a 4000sf retail space.

While studying at MIIS, Karen was a graduate and teaching assistant for financial accounting and financial management, an accountancy assessment developmental editor for Pearson International (Australia), and prepared financial statements for an aquaponics start-up. Her thesis examines to what extent early country regime response to BEPS can be used to marginally anticipate tax risk conditions and reduce ambiguity and uncertainty. She will complete it and officially graduate in August. Karen is interested in forensic investigation of trade-based financial crimes and international taxation.

Karen recently started doing kettlebell exercises and is amazed how exhilarating and effective it is. She enjoys national and international travel, eating good food and going for long walks with friends.
