What Karen values the most in her life are her roots! Growing up in Bellevue, Nebraska, Reston, Virginia, and Fairfax, Virginia, Karen eventually moved to Caswell County, North Carolina to care for her mother and learn more about her family’s history. A genealogy buff, she loves the rich history of this region and how easily she can find the relations between her family and that history. Her favorite things to do are volunteering, connecting with family and friends, writing, and of course, being an MBF Fellow (her words, not ours).
“Living in the area where my family grew up, I love how easily I can study my family’s genealogy.”
