In 2004, after attending a local AFA meetings, Karen started volunteering in the local office gravitating toward the grievance committee and later serving as Grievance Chairperson. She has continually defended Flight Attendants contractual and disciplinary rights ensuring the companies consistent and correct applications of the provisions governing the Flight Attendant profession.
In 2011, Karen was elected for and currently serves asCouncil Representative for Council 21 (DCA). She has worked as a liaison for Flight Attendants to ensure their issues are brought forward as well as assisting the local AFA Officers in communicating with the membership.
Karen’s passion and experience has naturally led her to serve as Team Leader for the Council 21 Mobilization Committee and now to the position as Membership Engagement Chairperson. Her experience is that an educated, unified and mobilized work group can achieve great things!
