Karen is a Truckee native who studied at UC Davis and University of Nevada, Reno, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Forest Management and Ecology. While she enjoyed working in the solitude of nature, she realized she greatly missed working with people and had the desire to enter into a profession where she could better serve others in her community. She returned to college to obtain her degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant, and simultaneously completed her Pilates Instructor training through Balanced Body.
Karen’s clinical specialty is rehabilitation utilizing the principles of Pilates.
Outside of work Karen enjoys reading, live music, any and all outdoor activities, and sharing her love of nature with her husband and young daughter.
