Introducing Karissa

Karissa is my new friend and co-worker. She embodies that line from the Billy Joel song, “Always a Woman to Me”, “she is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel”. Except that with Karissa it is the other way around, “she is frequently cruel and suddenly kind.”

Karissa takes no crap. She is the quintessential New Yorker, impatient with a low threshold for the inept, demanding, incredibly capable, and loads of fun. When she needs you at work, she calls out your name, “May -tuh”. Only time will tell whether Karissa adapts to Spain or whether Spain will have to adapt to Karissa. I thoroughly enjoy the time I get to spend with her.
