What people have to say

From Laura Jean (LJ) Shannon, costume designer

Footloose (Remake), Good Girls Revolt, Jumanji, Electric Dreams

Karen is my go to gal for all aspects of creativity.

Whether it be having to dress 10’s of thousands of extras from every walk of life in every situation in 1969, each with their own distinct back story and voice...or creating multiple different futures in a curated lens that delves into character development, Karen has a unique ability to really get to the core of a character and make each body shine.

Karen comes to work each day with a smile on her face and a positive can do attitude.

I literally cannot imagine having navigated “Good Girls Revolt” or “Philip K Dick’s -Electric Dreams” without her inspired creativity and unbridled work ethic.


Andrew Denyer, producer


Hi Karen,
Thanks for this status report and all your hard work.
I have rarely had such a trouble free wardrobe experience particularly when dealing with a cast of this size and will definitely keep you in mind for any projects, anywhere.
Hope our paths cross again.

Karen is a consummate professional. She’s highly resourceful and has one of the most impressive work ethics I’ve seen. Her positive, can-do attitude makes her a valuable team member and joy to be around. I would hire her on every project if she was available.

Karen is a wonderful colleague and collaborator – she brings a ton of ideas to the table, and is impeccably organized and prepared. She’s wonderfully autonomous and reliable, and having her on set takes a lot of stress off of many other people. A pleasure to work with!
all the best,
