With many years of research and project management experience, expertise in community-oriented outreach and engagement, and strong connections in the City of Victoria, the CRD and UVic, Karen provides on-the-ground knowledge of progress on the Victoria AAA-Network, as well as related bicycle events and activities. She also provides an information bridge between related BikeMaps.org and INTERACT projects. Prior to her current work Karen worked as lab manager at the Spatial Pattern Analysis and Research Lab at UVic, while collaborating on a wide variety of research projects.
In her personal life, Karen has gained considerable experience volunteering on numerous boards that support amateur sports or community initiatives. In addition to being mom to a somewhat sports-crazy family, Karen can be found running the trails around Victoria.
