Karen always had a love of learning. The oldest of six children, Karen comes from a close-knit family, and she was homeschooled in Webster, NY, for most of elementary through high school. She knew she wanted to stay in Rochester for college, so she started her studies at Monroe Community College, and transferred to The College at Brockport in the fall of 2007. It was the College that opened her eyes to a new career. Read about how that happened.
