  • Through her 7+ year career that has spanned broadcast, digital, and print news media, she has had the opportunity to interview Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Beautyblender COO Catherine Bailey, Academy Award-winning actress Diane Keaton, and actresses Judith Ivey and Sheila McCarthy from the Academy Award-winning film "Women Talking."
  • She was invited as a member of the press for the 2022 American Film Institute Festival in Los Angeles, CA.
  • During her time as a reporter for PBS39, she had the opportunity to cover major political events such as the 2019 Women's March in Washington D.C. and the 2019 N.J. State of the State Address.


Through her education and experience, Karishma has been trained as a research-based reporter. Her undergraduate minor in Biological Sciences has given her a background and knowledge in reading through medical jargon, which allows her to relay the information you need to know on health and wellness. Karishma's passion for beauty and lifestyle emerged from her days as a classically-trained dancer. She learned how to do her own elaborate stage makeup for Indian classical dance recitals. These skills helped her later on when she had to do her own makeup as a TV reporter. Now, she wants to inspire other women to love themselves and feel beautiful through self-care.


Having earned her BA in Communication-Media from North Carolina State University and her MS in Journalism from Boston University, Karishma has a strong foundation in informational writing, coupled with content marketing skills.
