Karen manages the society's finances and she enjoys making sure that every dollar goes towards providing the best possible care for the men who seek help from TWC. She has worked in corporate financial management and volunteered with non-profit drug and alcohol recovery societies for 20 years where she acted both as treasurer on a board of directors and as a facilitator for groups of women in recovery. With a heart for people in recovery and the skills for financial management, her job is perfect for her! In her spare time, Karen loves sailing- where her strength, courage and skills are challenged. She sails with a team that races in English Bay all year round and participates in big annual races including the Swiftsure and Van Isle 360. She also likes land-based activities - either hiking in the forest with her dog or playing in her garden at home.
