Karen is a motivated team player with eighteen years of professional experience with the DOE.  She was formerly a Transportation Manager under the Brooklyn Integrated Service Center organization, where she worked collaboratively with the Office of Pupil Transportation to ensure transportation services were provided to eligible students in a timely manner. And she previously worked as an Operations Manager in a Children First Network, where she performed many different functions including Procurement Analysis, Budget Analysis and Payroll Administration.  She finds it gratifying to use the experiences gained and the bridging of new information in her current role as an Operations Analyst, by helping schools meet compliance deadlines for finance and ultimately impacting student achievement.
