Karen Adler, CIRP, Licensed Insolvency Trustee
Karen Adler began practicing in consumer insolvency in 2002, after ten years in the fields of education and software training. She joined Rumanek & Company Ltd. as a Licensed Insolvency Trustee in 2009.
“I have often observed how debt can affect marriages and family relationships, cause physical and emotional stress, and hurt job performance. Each person’s situation is so unique, and I do my best to make sure that those who need debt relief not only have a clear understanding of their options, but also feel respected and understood. It’s so rewarding to hear people say ‘I wish I had done this years ago. Thank you!'”
