Karen has been an avid animal lover her entire life and ridden horses since before she could walk. Her initial career found her in human resources, business development and client retention. Her passion and love of animals brought her back into the field of veterinary medicine. Karen has been a Veterinary Technician since 2007, upon completing her studies at St. Petersburg College. Her desire to further her education and career with animals lead her to Berry College, where she completed her Pre-Veterinary Sciences. Following her dreams of riding her horse and year-round good weather, she relocated to Norco, CA and completed her Bachelor’s in biology and animal science, at La Sierra University, where she met her husband, David. They relocated back to Georgia in 2018 and purchased their 122 acre farm in Stephens, GA, Oglethorpe County. They share the farm with their 5 horses, 2 goats, a miniature cow, 9 chickens, 4 dogs, 2 cats, and a parrot.
