Karen L. Gabler, attorney with the Camarillo law firm LightGabler, was one of six professionals honored as a Valued Mentor of 2020 by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. The honorees were announced at an August 20 virtual event.
This inaugural award was created to honor executives who mentor others in their profession and help ready the next generation of leaders.
One of those mentored by Gabler was Angela Lopez, an attorney at LightGabler. "Karen is very strategic," says Lopez. "Her willingness to explain her tactical decisions helped me learn and grow, and I now approach all problems in a more mindful and deliberative way."
Gabler has volunteered hundreds of hours as an officer, director or member of foundations, chambers of commerce and women's groups.
"Karen models great community service and involvement, and has involved me in several wonderful community service organizations over the years," says Lopez. "Karen frequently reaches out to her own personal contacts on behalf of young attorneys, and has helped many of us develop community ties through board membership or other community involvement."
Other recognitions include 805 Living Magazine’s "Giving Back" award and the United Way of Ventura County’s Milton M. Teague Award for community service.
