Director of Operations
Karren has an established reputation for relationship building.

She is an innovative and versatile leader, both in the workplace and as a mentor for Locelle, and is an active board member for United Way Southern Vancouver Island.
When not shaking hands and winning hearts and minds, Karren revels in the many delights the West Coast has to offer, enjoys snuggles with her pint-sized pup, and heads off on family adventures near and far.
