Karen Phillips

Executive Media Director

Renaissance woman, generalist, Jill of all trades… whatever you call Karen, she’s undoubtedly a multifaceted gal. Her list of experiences could fill a two-inch binder: swamping on the Grand Canyon’s whitewater, serving at a Mexican restaurant in Ireland, backpacking solo through Southeast Asia—and these barely scratch the surface. Maybe her taste for adventure fueled her decision to get into media, which she says is all about finding new and undiscovered opportunities. As a media planner, she’s worked with everything from fast food and watches to cars and cannabis. George Harrison is her favorite Beatle, under the stars is her preferred sleeping situation, and her retirement locale of choice is a lovely pied-à-terre in the Big Easy (or maybe in a shiny Airstream, traveling through our National Parks).
