Born in Minneapolis, raised in Livermore, California, and currently living in Fresno, California, Karen has been active as a performer throughout her life. Her professional background includes choreographing, directing and performing in regional theatres and touring shows, singing in rock, blues, folk, and jazz bands, doing voice-overs and studio work, and teaching dance and theatre in grades 4 through 12. She enjoys performing a wide variety of styles of music, being drawn primarily by lyrics, she says. "Any song that has unexpected, interesting, or simply profound lyrics draws my attention.  It is the storytelling part of singing that I love best."
