A tech-savvy, practical and imaginative leader, Karen is Toombs Inc.’s Director of Administrative Operations. With a background in management, accounting, and technology, she has a solid understanding of business operations, project management, and human resources. Karen is responsible for leading the development and implementation of operational efficiencies across Toombs Inc.’s Canadian offices and International partnerships.

Thirteen years ago, Karen became a client of Toombs Inc. after an elected lay-off from a large financial organization. This was her first introduction to career transition services. Upon making a strong connection with her career coach, and learning about the company, they both realized it would be a perfect fit. Karen then took on the opportunity to lead the business’ administration management team.

Day-to-day, Karen shines with an enthusiastic, positive attitude, which helps her establish excellent working relationships with clients, customers, and team members. In addition to her wealth of administrative management responsibilities, Karen is also responsible for overseeing company events, marketing, managing accounts payable, and receivables. She also leads all technology operations, including IT infrastructure, data management, CRM, eLearning, and Job Vertex portal.

A Business Administration (Management) graduate from SAIT, Karen has more than twenty years’ experience in senior-level administrative management. Her resourcefulness and tenacity have allowed her to grow from office management roles, early in her career, to executive leadership.

Drawn to companies with entrepreneurial mindsets, Karen gravitates to organizations where she can play a role in company growth across all areas of the business.

Karen shows up for her team and clients by going above and beyond to make sure that everyone feels heard and supported, particularly in busy times and internal organizational change.

Our Success Stories

Toombs Inc. helps clients move into the next phase of their career with insightful assessment to define the right direction to achieve the best-fit opportunity.

How we support you

“This was the first time I had ever worked with a transition agency, so I approached it with some trepidation. However, my apprehensions were quickly dispelled. Toombs was there the day I was laid off, which was a very traumatic day for me. I had never been laid off before. I was very angry and upset, and Toombs immediately helped ease those feelings. Their kindness, patience, and guidance were of great help to me that day, and set the foundation for what developed into a very productive relationship.”

“Martha played a critical role in helping me discover myself and define my path forward. She may be the best active listener I have ever encountered. Her patience, encouragement, guidance, listening, and ability to help me uncover my new career direction were invaluable to me, and I cannot thank her enough.”

“My engagement with Toombs was extremely valuable and very helpful. The “It’s Your Move” book is a tool I expect I will use throughout my working life. I have already passed it on to others (including my son)! The courses offered were without exception of great value; well researched and well delivered.”
