Ever since childhood, Nancy loved to travel and it was her goal to find a career that provided an opportunity to see the world. She graduated from UC Berkeley and her first job was with Royal Cruise Line in their sales organization. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1990, Nancy was elated to join Oracle where she was the Director of User Group Programs for North and South America overseeing customer relations, marketing program development and event execution. In 2000, Nancy joined Cisco Systems and continued growing her expertise planning domestic and international events in Europe, Asia, and the Americas where she was able to develop her business acumen for the execution and success of global events. Nancy ventured off on her own to form Backflip Events in 2006 where she managed the creation and development of conferences, trade shows and meetings for her clients in the technology, banking, insurance and the medical fields. She has a very active life and enjoys running, eating, spending time with her family and, of course, traveling.
Throughout her career, Karen has developed and managed a variety of integrated advertising and event marketing programs for leading brands such as Gatorade, Toyota, Callaway Golf and Ford Motor Company. With more than 20 years experience, Karen is well regarded for her ability to negotiate sponsorships, create innovative events and manage lead generation. Her expertise encompasses all aspects of marketing and advertising from repositioning brands and multi-million-dollar product launches to crafting websites, digital advertising, email campaigns, event tours, trade shows and meetings. Karen holds B.A. and B.S. degrees from the University of Southern California. If she’s not developing new experiential marketing programs for her clients, you’ll likely find her sweating in a PiYo class, being taken for a walk/drag by her exuberant mutts, or planning a soiree for family and friends.
