Front Office Manager
Karen spends most of her time managing our front desk with a little technician work on the side. She attributes her love of animal care with growing up in a home full of orphaned wild animals. She also trained and showed Arabian horses professionally for several years following college.
With a degree in Biology, Karen pursued a career in natural resources, starting with the Bridger-Teton National Forest and culminating with ten years as a regional biologist with the Bureau of Reclamation in Salt Lake City. There, she focused on recovery of sensitive and endangered species and riparian restoration research. Desiring to return to the Greater Yellowstone region and spend more time with her young son, she “retired” from her career and settled in Teton Valley in 2007.
Karen spends as much time as possible camping, paddling, berry picking, and botanizing with her son and anyone else they can drag along.
