“Karen was hired on by MyHEAT for her strong connections in both government and environmental affairs in the province of Ontario.  Needless to say, she was extremely influential in getting us meetings with decision makers and municipal leaders that we likely would not have obtained otherwise.  Karen has a solid understanding of the political landscape and how best to approach it with our business. I would highly recommend Karen and would not hesitate to contract her for similar business in the future.”
