Karen lives in South Jersey with her three dogs, husband and 4 year old daughter Olivia. Graduating from Seton Hall University with a B.A. in Journalism and Public Relations, she was a staff writer for the Setonian and a Public Affairs Intern at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. One of her proudest moments as a writer so far has been interviewing Tim Gunn from 'Project Runway' and subsequently winning Honorable Mention in NJ for Feature Writing. When she is not busy as a stay-at-home-mom she enjoys reading, going to the boardwalk in Ocean City and watching the Real Housewives. She is very excited for the opportunity to write for NJ Mom and share her love of being a mom and finding fun things to do with her family in New Jersey.
