Having grown up with 8 brothers and sisters, it’s no wonder Karen is a “people person” who enjoys a lot of activity. Her first full time job couldn’t have exemplified that more. For around 10 years, she worked as a children’s photographer in JCPenney stores, traveling to different smaller stores each week for the first 4 years.
Over the course of her career, Karen has worked for various sales and merchandising companies. They have been good preparation for our Office Manager role, and equally helpful is her involvement in parish life at St. Michael Catholic Church in St. Michael. She has seen that parish grow substantially over the past 20 years and is excited to be a part of helping St. Gerard’s grow and thrive.
Besides her Catholic faith, Karen’s passion is her two young grandsons. She and her husband, Ivan, love to spend time with them and feel so blessed that they live close by. Daughter Marie, son Grant, and son-in-law Aaron complete the immediate family… for now.
