Karen’s undergraduate education was in Finance with a minor in accounting. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Moorhead State University in 1992.

Karen decided to run for the 3rd U.S. Congressional District of Wisconsin after becoming disturbed and frustrated by watching what has been going on in Washington, D.C. for over five years. She believes that the Constitution is being shredded by multiple attacks upon it by the current administration through Obamacare mandates, NSA spying on law-abiding citizens, the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups for protected 1st Amendment activities and the over-reaching of authority by the president through executive orders.
