Karen began her career working in NHS PR, handling accounts for various heath authorities in the Midlands, whilst juggling her passion for music  by writing music and event reviews in her spare time.

Karen has always had an interest in music, which led to her to spending 6 years producing radio shows at BBC Radio 1Xtra before going on to produce online content for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra for a further 3 years. This involved managing the network homepages, generating social media output and leading on digital content for a number of events including 1Xtra Live, Radio 1 at The BRITS and lots more.

She also currently runs her own PR Agency, Shiloh PR (www.shilohpr.com), focusing on publicity for music events and helping brands to reach ethnic communities in the UK through public relations.

In addition, she gets to continue to exploit her interest in social media as she works full time as the Online Editor at Kiss FM, where much of her role is focused on developing the brand’s social media strategy and encouraging online interaction with audiences.
