Karen received a B.S. in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware where she was a member and Co-Captain of the Division 1 Varsity Tennis Team. Karen worked at wellness centers in New Jersey as a Fitness Manager where she managed training departments and developed individual and group exercise programs. However, as the childhood obesity epidemic continued to grow, Karen became intrigued by the thought of working with children to help reverse this trend through education. Presently, Karen is the FAN4Kids Program Coordinator. She started working for FAN4Kids seven years ago as a well-respected FAN4Kids instructor in Newark, NJ. Karen brings managerial skills, exercise prescription experience, teaching and motivating tools to FAN4Kids. With a love for educating others – especially children – on how to live long and healthy lives, Karen feels very lucky she found a career path that truly embodies who she is. Away from work, Karen lives the healthy lifestyle herself as she enjoys exercising and eating healthy, as well as spending time with her husband, 2 young children and dog!
