Karen is a journalist, writer and photographer. She’s a well-rounded writer who can report on multi-layered stories, pen thoughtful personal essays, or research and write objective, appropriately ho-hum academic reports. She also has a penchant for design, and knows what HTML and CSS are.

Some of Karen’s favorite topics to write about are culture, creativity, dogs, education, language, mindfulness, nature, policy and politics, science, her fascinatingly complicated home state of Texas, and travel, among other topics.
