Karen Nasca, Business Development Director

Upon graduation from the University of Florida, Karen began her career in marketing and public relations, working for several prominent agencies and real estate development firms in the South Florida area. A move to Chicago for a senior communications position for one of the city’s major developers led to a career shift, marketing high-tech security systems to the Downtown Chicago, Class A office market. As the manager of Touchcom's Chicago office, Karen successfully built this start-up company's foothold in the marketplace and was instrumental in its acquisition by a major international security firm. With U.S. offices based in West Palm Beach came a move back to South Florida. Karen decided to dedicate her efforts to being a full-time Mom and a part-time volunteer at her son's school as a literacy and math coach. With middle school on the horizon, Karen was ready to embark on a new career and was impressed by the quality and reputation of FLMA's local publications when introduced to them. As Business Development Director, Karen is tasked with finding new ad sponsorships for our client publications, reinforcing existing sponsorships and creating new business opportunities for FLMA and our clients.
