Karen joined the SHYFT family after working with Beth Benzenberg, who reached out to her to join our team! As a Senior Project Manager, Karen’s diverse industry experience sets a high bar and even greater value for our clients. She provides design and project management with the knowledge of how and why workspace will or will not work for the user. Karen is able to quickly evaluate a problem or challenge, and begin to define a solution that makes sense.
Karen is currently working on the relocation of Quantum Health’s headquarters to the city of Dublin. The team will be complete with the 250,000 SF renovation early summer 2021. She has also been involved with the completion of 26,000 SF of renovated space for Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s (MORPC) local offices in German Village.
