Fun facts about Karen:
In a former life, she was a dancer for the Charlotte Hornets pro basketball team (and was surprised to end up designing the purple sequined and spandex costumes).
Legendary composer, Cy Coleman chose Karen to help develop material for a new musical (which led to many "pinch-me" hours singing with him at his piano.)
While living in Nashville working as a performer/producer for a national magazine show, she was mentored by comedian Minnie Pearl and often passed the time with Dolly Parton, Roy Acuff, and other notable luminaries on and off the Grand Ole Opry stage.
