Karen grew up on a property in the Snowy Mountains in southern NSW. She has spent (too many) years at university, eventually graduating as a Physiotherapist and working in Shepparton, Goulburn, Melbourne and Echuca in that field. She also completed a ministry traineeship in 2010-2011 in Goulburn NSW, a time which was made very difficult by suffering with glandular fever and subsequent chronic fatigue. She completed a Masters/Grad Dip through Ridley College Melbourne in 2016 and has been involved most recently at St Jude’s church in Parkville.
Karen has a mum and dad (who live on a smaller property near where she grew up), a twin sister and an older brother in Sydney, and a sister-in-law in Cooma. She enjoys playing guitar, is an avid cricket and tennis fan, can quote ridiculous amounts of BBC period drama productions to you and is known to get hooked on Netflix series at times. She also loves to read, feel the sun on her face and is trying to up her walking capacity.
