Although Karen has been in the DFW area for many years, she still calls Virginia home where her mother still lives in her childhood home outside of Williamsburg. Karen spent the first 10 years of her life growing up in various European countries due to her late father’s military career and is very appreciative of the many different cultures she was able to experience during that time.
Karen currently lives in the Collin County area with her husband and they both enjoy visiting downtown McKinney and exploring new eateries or returning to old favorites. In her off time she spends several hours a week volunteering her time helping children and young adults with varying disabilities. She has also been a member of JLCC for several years and is involved in various other volunteer projects throughout the year. She enjoys outdoor road cycling, walking her dog, Marley, reading and watching fantasy, Sci-Fi and animated movies.
