Karen has been involved in theatre since she was a child.  She played Molly in the national touring company of Annie and from that moment on she was hooked.  She has spent 12 years studying various forms of dance and she minored in Musical theatre at the University of the Pacific.  Karen has worked with many theatres in the Sacramento area directing children's programs and acting herself. She is the cheer coach at Bella Vista High School and GEA All Stars. Dance and performance is her passion.
