After spending the last 20 years in the insurance industry, Karen signed on in early 2023 as an Administrative Assistant for DSF. Karen has been a volunteer Parent Ambassador for the West Region of the DSF Family Network since 2015 and helped to bring the Day of Dravet events to San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles.
At age 4, her son Miles was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome. Upon researching online Karen found the Dravet Syndrome Foundation and the online support group. It was there she found her voice, along with vital information, immense support, and great friends within the Dravet community. She is excited to join Team DSF, to help push our mission forward and to improve the lives of all those affected by Dravet syndrome.
Karen currently lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband Jermaine and their 4 children. In her free time Karen enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, talking golf with Miles, and shopping at local flea markets.
