Karen Everett, Vice President of Operations and Administration
She's skilled with numbers, statistics and data, and has an analytical mind to make sense of it all. With approximately 25 years experience in administrative and executive management support roles, she's able to put those skills to good use on behalf of MindShare clients. In fact, she's an instrumental resource in leading such projects as SalesForce database management and campaign set-up, establishing online surveys through MindShare's research tools, and providing all client reporting on financial budgets and project billing. She's skilled in all Microsoft Office software products, troubleshooting problems and leveraging technology at various levels of projects in a business environment that is built around Microsoft Office products and software-as-a-service (SAAS) platforms.
She and her business partner/spouse, Brian, launched MindShare Strategies in 1997 and have grown the firm into a successful marketing enterprise. Previously, she worked as Office Manager at Ridgeview Business Health Services, in accounting and financial management roles with Holiday Companies and the University of Minnesota, and as a legal assistant at Callahan Gorman & Woodford. In her spare time, she expands her knowledge of the world by listening to educational podcasts (often on random trivia), watching Seinfeld reruns, and spending time with her husband, Brian, at their second home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Karen and Brian have two children, Keaton and Brynn; and a very high-energy and mischievous dog, Roscoe.
