Karen’s expansive accounting skills, spanning over 20 years, have equipped her for helpful and meaningful work on our Accounting team. Originally from Houston, Texas, she has a son named Colby and two fur babies, a dog named Mia and a cat named China. She moved to the Grand Strand without knowing anyone local after living in Atlanta, Georgia, for 20 years, with the dream and ambition to live by the beach, which she has now achieved. She is a LeTourneau University graduate with a degree in Accounting. Her sales-tax knowledge and Excel expertise have prepared her well for her role at Laudisi. She recognizes the value of never giving up, which has carried her through her education, career, and all that life has thrown her way.

She describes herself as Christian, funny, and quiet. When she isn’t working, Karen loves anything to do with animals, including grooming dogs, and has a passion for animal shelters. Her dedication to animals runs deep; when she was a child, she thought she would be a veterinarian. She enjoys going to the beach, especially during the off-season when there are few tourists, and she cannot live without Diet Coke. She believes life is best lived with honesty, alongside friends and family whom she loves to visit in Houston back home. She admires her mother most in the world for her support.
