“My career is best described as varied and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Karen gained a lot of experience from each and every role she undertook, but says her decision to go back to university as a mature student was a game-changer. Karen completed her MSc whilst working with the Department of Sport, Exercise and Health at Bristol University, which gave her a real sense of purpose and direction and helped her tune into her belief in the power of people to affect positive change.
Karen joined GIY because she loves a mission and wanted to bring her energy and experience to something she really believed in. Saturdays and her family motto – ‘there is always a solution’ – best capture who she is. Busy days with her partner, their children, an array of animals and whatever activities are planned fuelled by good food and great coffee.
