After ten years as the Director of Occupational Health, Karen walked away from her career to concentrate on her animal rescue mission. She founded St. Joseph Elementary School “Paws for a Cause”, The MOMS Rescue and Georgia Puppy Caravan. With an undying passion for children and animals, it only seemed natural to combine the two to speak for each other.
As the mother of a young child named Matthew, a very tight bond was formed between mother and son. Matthew would be given the up-front approach on matters of the heart in the hopes that he would make his world a different place for all! This approach was done in a way that made Matthew want to learn and be involved in what went on in his world, outside the bubble we live in. She is very proud that he will carry on her work long after we are gone. Together with Lorenzo, Karen also founded Animal Aid USA and the Amazing Grace Caravan and the Miracle Ranch in Ludowici, GA.
