Karleen first honed her skills for managing complex projects growing up on her family’s heritage farm in Iowa. She now uses those talents to serve Look East’s clients.
As project manager, Karleen provides day-to-day management and execution of all types of client programs, all while tracking goals and managing budgets. Karleen enjoys serving agriculture and food clients because it gives her the opportunity to collaborate on issues and topics that are important to her.
After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa, Karleen worked in the banking industry, then served at a full-service marketing agency before joining Look East.
When she is not keeping Look East organized, Karleen likes to do things with her three younger sisters – as long as they don’t have to pick rocks out the fields like they did growing up. She enjoys outdoor activities and exploring places in the world she’s never been before.
