Once the vision is set, and we’ve planned what needs to happen in Zambia, Karen’s role is to organise events and make fundraising happen in all shapes and forms from cake sales to marathons! Karen has been with Beyond Ourselves since it began and organised the first fundraiser party ‘Zambezi Flow’ which funded the building of a classroom block at the first school we partnered with.
Karen also works at Stephen James BMW where Beyond Ourselves was borne.
Karen’s work and life motto is ‘get the job done well but make sure it is lots of fun’. This includes spending time with family and friends, and, like Jodie and often with Jodie, good food, wine, gin and walking.
Karen is also part of Restore Community Church.
