Her Business Philosophy: In our busy, fast-paced culture, I focus on building long-term relationships with teammates and with customers. I ensure my team knows they are appreciated and valued as employees, and as people. During morning meetings, I try to pick out one thing they did great that week and commend them in front of the group. Not only am I focused on satisfying our customers, but I strive to satisfy them with patience, respect, compassion, empathy and understanding because they are the ones who ultimately keep us in business.
Committed to supporting local charities, she is a member of the Taylor Lions Club and supports Down Home Ranch (individuals with disabilities), Taylor ISD Mentorship Program, Jail to Jobs, Veteran Programs, and MANY more.
Karkoska graduated from Mary Hardin Baylor University with a Degree in Psychology, a Minor in Business and has almost completed her Master’s Degree in Biblical Counseling.
Karkoska is family oriented, her child is a chihuahua named Jojo, and she also loves hanging out with her parents. Besides the Lord, they are the light of her life. Her pastor’s family has adopted her as their own, so she has an “adopted” grandmother she takes to church every Sunday and spends the day with her. She also enjoys camping, playing board games, going to the movies, and shopping.
