Biography

Co-Founder, Karen's Club

Me | My background is in nonprofits, social enterprise, data analysis and product management. While I've founded initiatives before, I'm a first time org co-founder! Excited to learn and benefit from the talented volunteer community on Catchafire.

Karen's Club | Karen's Club is named for our founder, Karen Peterson. Diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in 2017, Karen fought her way into a clinical trial after her original doctor told her no. The trial ended up saving her life. We're here to make sure no person of color is denied the most advanced and relevant care, as Karen almost was. Learn more at karensclub.org.
