Karen first learned about the Guelph Wish Fund for Children when attending the annual Gala in 2015 and wanted to become involved because of her love of working with families who could use support. She hopes to be able to help bring smiles to the special kids and families in her home community. Karen joined the Board in 2017 and is a member of the Program Committee and Chair of the Gala committee. She is a Child and Youth Worker and works at Peel Children’s Aid Society. She also teaches part-time to Child and Youth Care students at Sheridan College. Karen lives in Guelph with her husband, Jason, and their two daughters. She is a proud dance mom who is excited to be giving back to her community through the Guelph Wish Fund for Children.
