Karen joined the On Your Side team in June 2013 after living in Florida her whole life. She is a proud alumna of the University of Central Florida in Orlando where she was a reporter, anchor and producer for UCF Knightly News.
During her college years, Karen interned at the CBS and Fox affiliates in Orlando, FL.
Karen has been reporting on the front lines for On Your Side for major national news including the release of Hailey Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the capture and recovery of James DeMaggio and Hannah Anderson, and Idaho's rollercoaster journey toward legalization of same-sex marraige.
When she's not filling in on Good Morning Idaho or stepping in on the weather wall, Karen can be found reporting on the evening newscasts for Today's 6 and Fox 9 three days during the week and anchoring Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Karen loves experiencing all four seasons Idaho has to offer, however the Florida native wouldn't mind if winters were slightly shorter. When she's not at work she loves exploring her new hometown with her two beloved dogs, Harley and Dexter.
If you see Karen out around town don't hesitate to say, "hi"!
