After watching too many episodes of «Northern Exposure» and dismayed by job opportunities in the maritimes, she boarded a plane for Norman Wells, then transferred to teach at Princess Alexandra and finally to École Boréale in Hay River. She is a strong voice for the youth in this community.
Karen was born and raised in Port Elgin, New Brunswick, but has settled in Hay River to raise her family. Karen has lived in the north for 23 years now.
The learning curve as a new member of council will be challenging, but I am optimistic and ready. I am happy and honored to join this dynamic team of councillors and represent the opinions of my fellow citizens!
