Karen Janette

Public Relations Director

As a graduate of the University of Florida and a proud Gamecock mom today, Karen has lived in SEC country most of her life. Her business experience has spanned coast-to-coast, however, as she has served as a growth strategy consultant with clients from East to West. Having started four businesses herself and having worked with a range of clients, Karen’s experience is as broad as it is impressive: developing impactful public relations campaigns, creating business expansion strategies, enhancing brand marketing plans, and strengthening client acquisition/retention strategies. She is a high-level thinker, a big-picture visionary, a relationship builder, and deadline-driven goal achiever. When not helping to build brands, she volunteers her time with the likes of TEDxGreenville and 1 Million Cups Greenville.
