Hi! I'm Karen (she/her/hers), and nothing brings me greater joy than being on the summit of a mountain with friends (of the human, dog, or book/journal variety) and good snacks. I've been working in the world of outdoor/experiential/international education, but after needing to repatriate to the USA from Cambodia because of COVID-19, I'm in "hustle mode" which for me means nannying, dog-walking, and taking the classes I need to pursue a career in nursing. When I'm not studying or working, you'll find me in the woods (running, hiking, backpacking), learning how to backcountry ski, sharing homecooked back-porch dinners with friends, or in my favorite chair reading.
