York Region Arts Council

“Kareen is driven, creative, meticulous and thorough in her work. She provides valuable insight into packaging creative content and did exceptional work on the York Region Festival Trail Portfolio. Kareen was motivated and exceptional at providing our stakeholders with the best service. She confidently supported and liaised with 40 festival stakeholders, created an online toolkit and accommodated the mandate of arts, culture, and tourism within the Region of York. She’s deadline driven and always accomplishes all that she’s set out to do. I have enjoyed every moment of working with Kareen, she’s patient, kind, understanding and has incredible communication skills. She brings warmth and positivity to any environment and has a lot of value to add.”

 – Divya Sinharoy, former Marketing Manager

“I worked with Kareen during my time as Marketing and Communications Manager at the York Region Arts Council. During this time we worked closely together on a large-scale marketing campaign highlighting festivals and events throughout York Region – the York Region Festival Trail. Kareen was the bedrock of the entire campaign. From her exceptional people skills (all of our festival and events organizers adored her) to her engaging and creative content creation, she was the key to this event’s annual growth and seeing over 1 million attendees each year. Kareen has a positive, warm personality and a strong work ethic. I would highly recommend working with Kareen and would gladly work with her again should the opportunity arise.”
