Karen is Dorset Mind’s Finance Assistant and is responsible for bookkeeping, bank reconciliations and other exciting and essential tasks!
Karen comes from a long background in charities and ran a small national charity called Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK for many years. This is a support group for people with a rare disability called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT for short), which she has as well as other family members. When she left, she set up a virtual PA business and runs that alongside her Dorset Mind work.
Karen stills supports people with CMT informally in a Facebook group, and is a trustee for another tiny charity too.
But it’s not all work – Karen spends a lot of time crocheting, she has a 1/12th scale dolls house which is fun, she reads a lot, plays silly games on her ipad and watches films. Money permitting, she loves to travel!
