Karen R. Mills Discusses Career Paths and Aronberg Goldgehn's Wheaton Office on The Local Podcast


In a recent episode of The Local Podcast, Karen R. Mills discussed her career and life progression, her work at Aronberg Goldgehn and the firm’s Wheaton, IL office and more with hosts Marc Horner, Wealth Advisor and Founder of Fairhaven Wealth Management in Wheaton and Vickie Austin, President of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce.

In the episode, “You Can Have It All – Just Not Today!” Karen started the conversation by discussing her career and education history, explaining how she worked in banking while progressing her bachelor’s degree and raising three kids, and then how she graduated law school at the age of 50. She reflected on these years as a time when she was actively engaged in her profession, which helped turn her work into a passion rather than a job.

Karen also:

  • Discussed the qualities of a strong work ethic and the drive to give back to people
  • Stressed the importance of building relationships with clients, co-workers and team members
  • Advised women to have the courage to try new things and switch gears
  • Emphasized the value of patience
  • Shared her plans to further her education

When discussing Aronberg’s newest office in Wheaton, which she heads, Karen explained the driving factors behind the firm’s decision to open the Wheaton office.
