Karyn's Professional Story

Karyn has never taken a backseat to learning and trying new things in her professional pursuits. Just prior to joining Retirement Evolutions, Karyn spent three years with the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona, first as their retail manager, then in fund development. While working with the Girl Scouts, Karyn developed a keen interest in learning all she could about the financial industry, and with Jon’s support and encouragement, she earned her life and health insurance license and left the Girl Scouts in 2013 to launch the health insurance division for Retirement Evolutions. For the next three years, through educational seminars, community group engagements and one-on-one meetings, she enabled hundreds of families and retirees to make well-informed, educated decisions about their health insurance and health care needs. She really became the “health care financing expert” for Retirement Evolutions. After encountering so many women in our firm who had experienced unexpected changes in their financial future, she decided she had to do more to help. Karyn added the Woman's Worth program to the suite of services provided by Retirement Evolutions and remains committed to changing women’s lives by ensuring they have the knowledge and tools necessary to protect their financial future and future legacy.

Karyn's Personal Story

Karyn is a Tucson native and daughter of a military family whose lifestyle helped shaped her childhood. She even elected to stay in Tucson and attend the University of Arizona. Since that time, she has enjoyed raising her family of two young adult children. That family is the beneficiary of one of Karyn's great joys - cooking. If she isn't in the throes of motherhood, you'll likely find her sparring at kickboxing, hiking, volunteering in the community or enjoying the company of good friends.
