Editor-in-Chief, Chatelaine - #1 Lifestyle Magazine
As Editor in Chief of Chatelaine, Canada's number #1 women's media brand, and mother of four, Karine's philosophy is to embrace the happy chaos and make everyday extraordinary.
She began her publishing career in New York City at Harper’s Bazaar, ("Nothing teaches you how to work harder than knowing there are thousands vying for your job!") and has held titles at various women's brands in both Canada and the US. “I have loved magazines for as long as I can remember,” she says. “They provided an escape to a world that I longed to be a part of.”
Her first job was pumping gas at her best friend’s dad’s gas station in southern Ontario. She spent the rest of her teen years teaching swimming lessons and lifeguarding at a beach in the same small town she and her husband, Jay, eventually returned to with their daughter, Milla, twin boys, Wyatt and Theo, and third son, Beckett.
At Chatelaine, Karine is in charge of expanding the 86 year old brand into new lines of business while continuing to entertain, enlighten and engage it’s loyal audiences across print, online, tablet, mobile, TV, radio and merchandise.
