Mike. M (Lead Researcher at a Startup)

Several years ago, I was brand new to the workforce, having spent my entire life in academics.  Karen has been a valued guide into the world of Silicon Valley.  She has helped me define my goals, analyze my processes, and understand how to adjust for life at a startup.  5 years later, she has seen me through numerous important decisions and new positions and has been a constant force for progress along the way.  Every discussion with Karen provides more insights as to the sources of challenges and strategies to address them.  With her help, I have been able to refine my strengths in a way that has allowed me to succeed at my company.
