With a mission-driven spirit and dedication, Sister Karen has served since 1999 as Director of the Congregation’s Development Office, which has grown significantly in donors and contributions during her tenure. Her meticulous nature translates into heartfelt expressions of gratitude and abundant prayers of support for friends and donors, many of whom she knows by name.
Sister Karen taught at Fontbonne Academy (1972-74), St. Joseph High School in Natrona (1974-81, 1986-88), Quigley in Baden (1981-84), and St. Pius V in Bronx, N.Y. (1984-86, 1989-1992). While in the Bronx, daily contact with the poor made her more keenly aware of the Gospel call to have a special care for the poor and to work to change structures that keep the poor disadvantaged.

Meeting hundreds of wonderful people who care about our Sisters and are willing to support our life and mission. Opportunities for prayer and spiritual growth . . . loving and supportive relationships in the Congregation with amazing women.”
