"Karla is an exceptional partner. She came to me with a proposal to start an educational initiative in the Elder Care Market in partnership with Lasell College. This has been very successful and has led Lasell to improve many of its internal systems and consider this type of initiative as a new market. Her ability to gain access to thought leaders in this field and develop programming that is necessary, challenging, topical and targeted is inspiring.
