Karen’s passion for travel started early in life. When she left school, her first job was working in a boarding school high up in the mountain town of Crans-Montana, Switzerland. This started her love affair with mountains, travelling and adventure.
Since then, she worked for British Airways for over 15 years in various roles – mainly within corporate communications and the London Gatwick press office. After leaving British Airways, Karen lived in Virginia, USA with her family for 4 years. Returning back to the UK, Karen then worked for a Canadian luxury train operator, before joining Aurora Expeditions.
Karen’s motto is ‘I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list!’
Karen has four children, and her parental advice amounts to ‘ travel – go and see the world!’
When not travelling or working, you can find Karen clay shooting, paddle boarding along the River Wey, horse riding in the Surrey Hills, or just walking and enjoying the beautiful countryside she is lucky to call home.
