Karina Branson is delighted to be a visual practitioner where she is constantly learning. Her work focuses on helping clients understand each other and expand their perspectives on the world and the systems they are working in through graphic recording. Karina is founder and owner of ConverSketch Graphic Recording and Visual Facilitation where she uses large-scale hand-drawn images and text to reflect and distill the key ideas of important conversations for her clients, in real time.
Karina is a member of the International Forum of Visual Practitioners and the National Coalition of Dialogue and Deliberation, and has been trained in facilitation and dialogue by the Center for Public Deliberation. Her unique approach has facilitated and supported collaborative strategic planning, community engagement, innovative brainstorming and critical systems thinking to help groups move forward and into action.
Karina holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Communication from Colorado State University and was awarded a National Science Foundation research assistantship to complete her Master of Science in Climate Change Communication, also at CSU. Her published research focuses on graphic recording to communicate complex science and facilitating creative communication strategies to engage citizens in climate change science.
