Meet Karen:

Karen has been with the Department of Recreation since 2006. Karen began working as a part-time seasonal employee at the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center. Her love of working with seniors kept her at the center and in 2016 she transitioned into the position of Recreation Coordinator.

A native of Pennsylvania, Karen moved to Rockville in 1970 and bought her home in 1998 with her husband and their infant son. They currently have a cat, Cookie and are hoping to add a dog to their family in the future. In the meantime, Karen enjoys pet sitting for her friends and family. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, gardening, bike riding and most of all eating Maryland crabs. Karen has volunteered at her local American Legion Post 86 for the past five years helping with events and programs benefiting our Veterans.
