Karen joined the CHN team in early 2016 and quickly established herself as a master of client service and student-focused care. Her responsibilities at CHN have steadily grown and she now supports our Operations Team nationwide.  She enjoys coaching and mentoring colleagues while promoting teamwork and focusing on CHN’s values.

Karen and her husband have been hosting international students in their home for over 15 years and she enjoys keeping in contact with the many friends they have made who still call her “mom”.  In her spare time, Karen can be found spending time with her adult children or many nieces and nephews.
