About Karen

Karen has been in the IVIg industry for over 15 years. During her tenure she has worked as a manufacturing representative as well as a specialty pharmacy representative. She especially enjoys participating in local and national Neurology and Immunology support group meetings and hearing the stories of the patients. Karen has gained an incredible empathy for those suffering with chronic illness and uses that to advocate for patients to gain the therapy needed to battle their disease.

Karen is a huge fan of YouTube to help in fixing anything around the house – and it’s worked!

Karen is passionate about family and enjoys spending as much time as possible with her immediate and extended family. When she’s not learning something from YouTube or hanging with family, you’ll find her in the garden, doing some interior decorating, shopping, or exercising – all in moderation!
