Before delving into the world of politics, Karyn first gained recognition as a businesswoman. By age 28, Karyn was a top national sales director in the print marketing space in the 1990’s. Realizing the potential for online distribution, Karyn helped pioneer the online video content for revenue platform, and was recruited by CBS Radio to oversee and develop nontraditional revenue sources for the South Florida market. After digitizing the medium and positioning them for sale, the company was sold in 2012 to Palm Beach Broadcasting for an unprecedented $50 million. In the years following, Karyn began taking on more customized projects that utilize her strong interpersonal skills, offering media and crisis management for professional athletes, celebrities and politicians.
While she may be a fixture at Ma-a-Lago, Karyn isn’t your typical socialite. She is extremely open about her own history as an adopted child as well as wife, mother, stepmother and grandmother. She’s a supporter of Israel, and has worked tirelessly with organizations like Anthony Kennedy Shriver’s Best Buddies, fostering inclusivity, tolerance and unity across the world. Other personal missions include research for Alzheimer’s Disease which her mother suffered from, children’s causes, and the National Federation for Republican Women.
Karyn lives in South Florida with her attorney husband, Evan Turk, with whom she works with on high profile client cases that are often splashed across the day’s headlines.
