Karen began her adventure with Earthroots in 2013 with her children in the Forest Kindergarten program shortly after moving to Orange County. She is a mother of four school aged children, and spending time with them outdoors is a priority. Karen was a public school teacher for 14 years in Long Beach, and she has a multiple subject teaching credential and a Master of Education in Dual Language Development. She loves working with children and instilling a love for nature in them. Last year, she volunteered at her kids’ elementary school as the Green Team Coordinator where she ran the school garden with students, organized a Waste Free Wednesday program, and conducted student led composting.
In her free time Karen enjoys camping, sewing, learning about birds and plants, and spending time with family and friends.
