Co-founder of Kontent Real Productions and Producer of the critically-acclaimed PBS series e2 – the economies of being environmentally conscious.  Kontentreal also produced “Ecoists” for the Sundance Channel, “Generation G” for Live Earth’s SOS Short Films Program, and has several other independent film and television projects in development.

Karena has been featured in BusinessWeek as a “serial entrepreneur” and offers the following advice to would-be entrepreneurs: “Don’t pursue an idea based on how much money you think it will make for you. Instead, pursue the ideas you’re passionate about. When you get so passionate that you can’t not do it, you’ll know you’ve hit on something.”

Over the past seventeen years Joli has poured considerable time and energy into fund-raising for an impressive list of worthwhile causes that include the Evelyn Lauder Breast Cancer Foundation, the Alvin Ailey dance troupe, the Northside Center for Child Development in New York City and the Panther Ridge Sanctuary in Wellington, Florida.

In her most gratifying work to date, Joli has helped to raise millions of dollars for the La Rabida Children’s Hospital and her tireless charitable efforts have resulted with a wing being named in her honor, as well as a free-standing building in Park Forest, Illinois known as the Joli Burrell Advocacy Center.
