Karen has been a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist for 28 years and has worked with individuals of all ages. She is the Therapeutic Recreation Supervisor for the City of Greenbelt, MD and has held this position for 27 years. She runs the Greenbelt Senior Center and provides accommodations for anyone with a disability so they will be able to participate in the Greenbelt Recreation Department programs. In 2012 she had been asked to be on a panel presentation at the Maryland Municipal League annual conference. She agreed to present and coming from a recreation background needed to come up with an activity that 60 plus individuals sitting in an audience would be able to actively participate in. Two days after she agreed to do this presentation, an Ageless Grace Educator came into her office wanting to teach Ageless Grace in the Greenbelt Senior Center.
