Karakorn had been with the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization, since 2001, according to her LinkedIn page, and was listed as its director of consumer marketing.
The Refinery29 website described her as a “ familiar face in D.C.’s most creative circles” and said she had also worked as a DJ. Washington Life magazine listed her in its “guide to Washington’s most influential 40-and-under leaders.”
