Meet the shift yes team


Kari Schuhknecht

Kari is our rockstar Business Manager, specializing in client communications as well as keeping the train on track and on time. She handles more than any other single human could, and crushes it on the daily.

Kari received her BA in political science from PSU with an emphasis on public service and a minor in business. Kari has always had a love for working with people and has been volunteering in her community since high school. When Kari isn’t at the office she enjoys practicing yoga, reading, writing poetry, and spending time with loved ones.

"I once did a theatrical performance on puns. It was a play on words."

Emilie is our Digital Marketing Manager, handling all things website, social media, and digital content.
She graduated magna cum laude with a double BS from Portland State U’s School of Business in Management and HR, with an emphasis on civic engagement.

The (Shift Yes) Office: Episode 1

A documentary film crew spends time recording life in the offices of an American keynote speaker. This is what they found. (Disclaimer: Both Emilie & Galen's dads saw this video and thought it was real. This is a satire, we don’t make each other cry. Oh, dads. *shakes head)

Emilie joins the team, Kari overrates their friendship and Galen finds out she's never heard a really popular song.
