Karen began her journey with FNC as a Nils Loans Officer in February 2019. Prior to this she was the Co-ordinator of Ageing Services with MidCoast Council for over 20 years, providing Aged Care Packages, Dementia Specific Day Care Programs and Social Support Services to Forster, Tuncurry, Hawks Nest, Tea Gardens, Stroud and surrounding areas.
In 2022 she took on the role as Business Manager/Nils Manager and is passionate in assisting those that need a helping hand.
During her time with FNC, she has seen the significant impact on our community from the natural disasters that our area has endured – fire, flood and of course COVID-19. ‘Increased homelessness and job losses has resulted in the increase in the number of people accessing the service and we take pride in doing our part to assist those in need, making their lives better.’
Karen enjoys working out at the gym, spending time with family and friends and loves our beautiful piece of paradise in which we live.
