Background / Experience
After a period working in Germany for a chemical company, Karen’s early career in financial services spanned 10 years working in international finance in London, before she moved to the West Country when her children were young.
Moving to the West Country was partly driven by the river networks of this region and Wales that offer great opportunities for kayaking, which allows you to see parts of the countryside and coastline that might not otherwise be accessible without extreme effort.
