Karen was born and raised in Oklahoma. She has a B.S. degree from Oklahoma State University for Agricultural Economics with farm and ranch management. She is married to a retired Naval officer and they’ve moved all over the US together, though we’re lucky she’s stopped at BlueDog’s home, Andover MA!
She has had dogs and horses most of her life; she had Irish Setters growing up and most of her horses were quarter horses. Her current horse is a five year old Paint mare that she hopes to show this year. Karen is also currently the proud owner of a 6 year old Golden Retriever, Roland and a 4 year old black lab named Frannie.
In addition to loving dogs, horses, and being at the barn, Karen likes to travel and her real love is going to Montana and riding the mountains out there!
