Karen joined Clark-Lindsey in 2014 to ensure current and prospective clients are aware of the comprehensive services available to individuals who have reached retirement age and/or are in need of long-term health care.  She plans, directs and coordinates a comprehensive marketing program for the organization through both oversight of internal and external marketing activities. Karen builds relationships in the community and with individuals currently on Clark-Lindsey Village’s waiting list.

“My greatest enjoyment comes from interacting with our residents and team members.  There is a sense of family here that I have not experienced in any other workplace,” says Karen. “It’s my pleasure to share news and information about our events and services as well as the accomplishments and special experiences our residents have had in their lifetimes.”
