A little more about Karen...
Who is someone you admire, and why?
My dad. As a first generation American on my father’s side, I have an enormous respect for the hard work and courage it took for him to leave his parents and home behind and start over in a new country. He was a very proud American, but always an Italian at heart! And my sweet mom… she is the most courageous woman I’ve ever known. In her 20’s she struck out alone from a small town, taking a job in the Middle East, and then travelling the world every chance she got. When she decided to settle down, she was a wonderful, patient mom, and I never once knew her to be afraid…of anything.
