Karen Stemmler

Marketing Professional in Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Branding. Story-telling. Consumer experiences. Exceptional executions.

PROFESSIONAL STUFF: I’m a high-energy, results driven marketing professional. For over 10 years I’ve worked with established and start-up premium brands in different capacities. I have worked in adjacent fields including finance, sales, brand and retail marketing where I honed and improved my skills, blurring the edges of my line of work. This means I can function strategically and understand the nitty-gritty of tactical executions. I shape things for the audience, for the consumer, so that they can understand it, the way you understand it.

I’ve worked within recognizable brands like Nike and Apple, Lindt & Sprungli and most recently, in the agency space at Central Station.

PERSONAL STUFF: I read a lot. People who say they don’t read make me anxious, and gasp. It’s always a good idea to read. To date, Anthony Robbins' “Awaken the Giant Within”, Charles Duhigg’s “The Power of Habit” and Joseph Murphy’s “Power of Your Subconscious Mind” remain all-time favourites.

I love ice cream. Way too much. I have a love-love relationship with it. I’m an all around sports lover and have the propensity to think like one - in that I believe the ability to listen to a coach is just as important as talent and training. Most recently, my new hero is my late terri-poo, Reese. I thought I knew what unconditional parent love was. Boy, did Reese ever teach me so much more.

I believe that it’s never too late to pursue a new goal, or learn something new. And one's motivation to learn trumps innate talent.
