Since working in higher education, Karen has been a member of the American Association of Women in Community Colleges. One of Karen's long term goals is to pursue a Ph.D. program. However, this will probably have to wait until her baby girl is in school that way they can both learn lots of new things together.
Karen had her first child on New Year's Eve of 2014. When she is not working, Karen is spending all waking (and sleeping) hours with Lexi. She loves to travel with her family and has been to Asia, Europe, Mexico, and all over the United States. In her spare time (which is now mostly spent changing poopy diapers), she also likes to read and write creative fiction. She has written a first draft of a full length novel about a mother with Borderline Personality Disorder, perhaps she'll return to it as soon as those diaper changings stop.
