As Strategies 360 Hawaiʻis Office Manager, Karen brings decades of experience in providing administrative support across a spectrum of areas, and ensuring project outcomes and key deadlines are met.
With over 20 years in government service, Karen brings a unique set of skills beyond office management. She spent years working in both the Hawaiʻi State House of Representatives and Hawaiʻi State Senate, working with several senators and legislators. Most recently, she was the Committee Clerk for the Senate Committee on Energy, Economic Development and Tourism. This legislative work has made Karen a valuable resource when navigating through complicated legislative processes and procedures. Additionally, she was the Executive Assistant for the Director of the State Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
Karen loves animals (especially her two beautiful Pomeranians) and volunteers with the Hawaiian Humane Society. She is active at high school sporting events, working with her husband who is the athletic director at Moanalua High School. If that wasnʻt enough, Karen also dabbles in acting – doing background work for tv shows and movies like the recent Hawaii 5-0, Magnum PI, Jurassic World and Godzilla, as well as local commercials.
Karen graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi.
