Karen’s Odometer

How to drive less and influence people

Karen Booze has been with FULL Creative for five years. In late 2013, she took her Ford F-250 pickup to Jiffy Lube for an oil change. The truck had about 200,000 miles on it. “When it was finally my turn,” she says, “the tech told me I had not been there since the previous November. I couldn’t believe it, but they showed me the records.” Karen had only driven 1,015 miles in a year.

“My morning commute is fifteen feet from the coffee pot to the computer,” says Karen, who works full time from home leading a team of FULL’s CX Consultants. If she commuted to FULL’s Portland-area office, she says, that alone would cause her to rack up 9,100 road miles a year. “That is a huge savings,” Karen says. “One more reason to love my job!”
