Karen Aroian cut her teeth in the trade editorial offices of Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, where she had the incredible good fortune to work with America’s finest editors and authors.
Through the years, Aroian freelanced as a magazine and newspaper writer, eventually returning to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, this time in Austin. Karen contributed to more than ten best-selling print and interactive products in eight years.
She mentored teams of editors who reviewed thousands of pages and multimedia on fast-paced projects. After eight years as an editor there, she founded her own writing and editing boutique. In addition, Aroian serves as the 2017-2018 president of Women Communicators of Austin, an organization with more than 250 members.
