Karen began her love affair with improv in Orange County, New York with NYC's Mission Improvable. She trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade and Chicago City Limits and performed regularly at various comedy venues around New York City. Since moving to Philadelphia she could be seen on the Philly Improv Theater House Team ZaoGao and the "indie" team Apocalips, with whom she attended various comedy festivals including the Del Close Marathon, the New York Improv Festival and the F Harold Comedy Festival. More recently Karen is a founding member of Baneton Abbey, one-half of the duo Jen and Karen, and has done voice and puppet work for Web Cereal.
In addition to improv, one of Karen's proudest achievements is graduating from Parsons School of Design. Her artwork can be seen hanging in the UCB Theater's Hot Chicks Room. She sometimes illustrates her web comic, Wednesday Night Danger Club.
