Karen was born to be part of the world of musical theatre. She grew up in a family of artists with a mother who sang opera and Broadway music and entertained the troops with the USO, and a sister who was a pop composer and was featured in a Broadway musical. Karen herself grew up playing the piano and singing, and she has contributed many lyrics to her husband Richard’s songs over the years. Though she trained to become a math teacher, Karen spent 15 years managing Richard’s medical practice while raising their two daughters. She has provided invaluable support to both Richard and Bonnie throughout the creation of Boca Bound and is a vital part of the creative team as the coordinator of the Boca Bound project.
