Karissa Zigarovich lives a life of adventure and travel. Her biggest adventure came this summer when she drove across the country, from NYC to Los Angeles, for her new role at ABC Family as Director of Consumer Insights. While in the past she’s travelled to Thailand, Barcelona, St Marten, Singapore and the beaches in southern France, this most recent journey left Karissa, her fiancé, and their dog loving the American cities of Omaha, NE and Aspen, CO. The trio made the move in one week, but you can catch a glimpse of the car ride up above. “It certainly won’t be the last cross country trek we go on,” Karissa told us.

On Fridays during football season, Karissa can be caught singing John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” as the work day comes to a close. “I’m a huge football fan, growing up watching the Steelers play in Pittsburgh and cheering on the Mountaineers while in college in West Virginia,” she says. Every year, Karissa and her friends take a trip to watch the Mountaineers play in different cities across the US. So far her favorite experience was witnessing the takedown of the Longhorns in Austin, TX, in 2012.
