Professional Bio

Having a history of working her way to the top, Karen has over 10 years of research administration experience. She began her career in research administration as a senior receptionist in the Office of Sponsored Projects Services at the University of Arizona. After four years as a receptionist, Karen moved into an administrative associate position, and a year later she was promoted to a sponsored projects administrator. In a little under three years, Karen was again promoted not once but twice and settled into the position of principal sponsored projects administrator in which she was ultimately responsible for training new staff members and preparing contracts for signature. She recently joined the University of Nevada, Reno as a pre-award manager in the Office of Sponsored Projects.
