She has extensive experience in business, economic development, event planning, and sales. For several years, she organized major conferences at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal. When the opportunity to play a role in the economic development of the riding presented itself, she accepted the position of Manager of the Service d’aide aux jeunes entrepreneurs of the Centre Local de Développement de Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

A perfectionist, she regularly attends training courses in customer service quality, direct marketing, crisis management, financial management, and major retail trends. In addition to this job, Karen owned a restaurant, and it was when her first daughter arrived that she decided to sell her business. Today, she has three children and is very proud of her involvement with her youngest child’s daycare, the parents’ committee of her son’s elementary school, as well as her presence at their activities. Karen is known for her determination and commitment. She now feels ready to work for the citizens of Vaudreuil-Soulanges.
