OYMC has been the back end compliance department for agencies nationwide. Karen is a well-known compliance geek who loves the ACA, COBRA, ERISA, FMLA, HIPAA, FLSA, and the like. She loves to take the complex spaghetti of regulations and turn it into easy-to-digest and implement content.

Most often, you will find Karen on the speaking circuit for agency/business strategy, compliance and a myriad of other topics. She loves to coach and consult with business owners to “run their business as a business”; including moving into a fee-based revenue model. You might also find her meeting with various DOI or legislatures to change or clarify the existing rules to allow the business owners to do just that. Karen encourages brokers to Be Column A®, which means be the broker/advisor/consultant that all others are compared to!
