Karen feels right at home within the Naropa community and loves the way that students, faculty, and staff take the time to honor and connect with each other every day. For much of the last decade, Karen has been working to help students realize their potential through higher education. It’s most rewarding when she finds students who embody the tenets of Naropa University, for they are the dynamos, the positive forces that motivate others and accelerate change. If you don’t see Karen on campus, just look outside. She spends as much time as possible skiing, hiking, beekeeping, gardening, and taking part in art and performance with her energetic family.
