“Families First is committed to meeting parents where they are and empowering parents to support their children’s growth. I’m excited to work with an organization that values and uplifts parents’ voices.”
Karen joined Families First in September 2018. Before joining Families First, she worked as a Research Assistant at the Center for Social Development and Education, where she evaluated a school-based Special Olympics program dedicated to promoting social inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities.
As the Evaluation & Programming Manager, Karen manages the day-to-day evaluation efforts at Families First.
