Karen Walls '02
Karen Walls received her MA from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland in 1988 and moved to Boston, where she began her career in marketing and sales, with a focus on business development in international trade for Nissho Iwai Corporation and then financial services with Thomson Reuters. In 1999, she decided to change career paths and pursue the Decorative Arts certificate program at the BAC. After completing her program in 2002, she was awarded an internship with respected interior designer Samuel Botero in New York, and in 2003 she joined Rogers & Goffigon, Ltd., a luxury fabric/textile manufacturer. Karen manages their N.E. sales and business development and feels extremely fortunate to work with the most highly regarded and talented design professionals in New England. She was the Secretary for the BAC's Alumni Association Board from 2008 to 2011. She has been involved in many charitable organizations in the past, including ten years with the Junior League of Boston and has for the past nine years served as a trustee for the University of St. Andrews American Foundation.
"My BAC education has enabled me to work in a profession that I adore and it would be a pleasure and privilege to share my knowledge and experience by "giving back" and assisting the BAC's alumni relations efforts for another term as Treasurer. I feel that I can make a valuable contribution and provide a unique perspective to the Board based on my strong business background, interior design & textile industry experience and trustee participation for the University of St. Andrews. I will be forever grateful for the doors that opened for me as an alumna from the BAC."
