I wish to honor Karla’s valuable contributions as a management consultant and college educator as well as good friend, family member, and my heroine.

She has influenced many people, shaped policy, and set an example for women in the workplace.

Karla earned the Master of Science Degree in Industrial Relations from Iowa State University where her research was Union Views on Comparable Worth. She became a respected leader in the field on compensation management. Her work included building incentive pay standards for manufacturing; recommending pay equity changes for female dominated jobs; reengineering pay practices and policies for universities and business; and educating college students on compensation and human resource management. She has been honored by and invitation to the Soviet Union to develop compensation policies; serving on the Governor’s Advisory Council; and presenting and conferences and seminars. She has encouraged and trained many supervisors on what it takes to have a respectful and productive workplace. Her expertise is sought out and she has given a lot to her clients and students.

Karla has contributed to making the workplace a better place.

Karla did it professionally and she did it right.
