Originally from Virginia, Karen grew up on a large family farm and witnessed her father succeeding through hard work and perseverance. Karen took those strong values and followed her heart, living life to the fullest while achieving many successes. She is applying her entrepreneurial spirit in various beauty, fashion, and lifestyle ventures, and she reigns supreme as the grande dame of Potomac. She is an advocate and ambassador for Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment (PAVE) and the Alzheimer's Association, and she uses her public speaking opportunities to uplift women, enabling healing and positive change.
Although Karen is known for throwing over-the-top parties at her home, her family always comes first, and she is extremely proud of all that she has accomplished with her husband, Raymond, of 21 years, and her smart and savvy children, Brandon and Rayvin. Most recently Karen has been on a healthy mind, body, and soul journey as she and Ray are getting acclimated to life as empty nesters, enjoying their passions and charity work.
