Karen was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, and is proud of the fact that she is 'SOUTH SIDE IRISH'.  She is a redhead with emerald eyes and is very proud of her Irish heritage.

She has one son who is 31 who lives not far from her but works so much he is hardly around. 

Karen returned to work full-time in 2005 after taking a break.  She suffered a heart attack and had double bypass surgery in Feb. 2004.  

She attended Joliet Junior College, majoring in Microcomputers for  Business, and maintained a GPA of 4.0.  In December 2003 she received her Certificate of Achievement in Microcomputers for Business, and also completed studies and succeeded in becoming MOUS Certified in 2005 in Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.  In December 2007, she received her Associates in Applied Science, Microcomputers for Business Degree.
It just proves that you're never too old to learn.
 

She is an Office Manager for a very successful and busy construction company in the Plainfield/Naperville area.

She is also an accomplished seamstress, having started sewing at her mom's elbow when she was just a pre-teen.  Her achievements in this field have included making most of her son's clothes when he was young.  Her greatest endeavor, and the one she is most proud of, was the creation of the Christening gown for her God-daughter and niece, which she made from her own wedding gown.  This was made without a pattern and will be passed down to her niece's children and on for generations to come.
