Upon graduation from Central Michigan University with a computer science degree, Mandy Karns set her sights on Los Angeles to pursue her more creatively-based goals. She first started at Acme Talent & Literary in the commercials department where she improved upon an already efficient and successful commercial team. Taking a proactive approach to her career, Mandy was able to start-up and head her own division devoted to representing dancers for TV, film, and commercials.
In 2009, Mandy made the move to TalentWorks with Brian Duensing allowing both the commercial and theatrical departments to work hand-in-hand, alongside one another. Though the dance division was later dissolved, Mandy was promoted to commercial agent. Since then she has helped promote and nourish many actors careers through the advertising and new media world.
