Karen & Ruben Santiago
Before Karen was the first Executive Director to emerge from Chicago, she was a grandmother with a 30-year hairdressing career that still left her struggling financially. The day Karen had to tell her granddaughter she couldn’t afford to buy her a doll, she resolved to make a change.
It came swiftly thanks to Kynect, with Karen earning the 2017 Rising Star Award, the 2018 Power of Leadership Award, a place in the 300 Club and the satisfaction of helping eight team members promote to Senior Director. She pictures herself as a Top Income Earner before long, and she has the mindset to get herself there. Karen grounds her success in leading by example and the belief that it’s never too late to do anything you desire—the most important thing is that you begin.
