Dr. Karen Gurney was born, raised, and lives in Cleveland Ohio with her husband, two Goldendoodles, and a Papillon. As a Clevelander, she grew up living with the decline and rebirth of a city that displaced thousands of professionals. This fostered her interest in urban economics, workforce development, and how to get people jobs. Since then she has worked with clients across the nation and world.
Dr. Gurney’s work has been featured on major U.S. news networks. Her book Stacked achieved Amazon's 'Hot New Trending' release in its first month and is frequently co-purchased with What Color is Your Parachute. She currently has eight online classes that teach career and business strategies in over 100 countries assisting over 11,000 students in their career pursuits.
As the Director of Strategic Development of Career IQ, she leverages a Doctorate in Economic and Workforce Development, a Masters in Business Administration, and has 20 years of combined experience in executive search consulting, career coaching, and human resources
