Over the years, Karen has garnered many credits and awards as an actress in both small screen and silver screen roles. She has enjoyed guest starring on numerous television shows such as CBS’s ‘The Inspectors’, and more recently, playing the recurring character of Aberdeen on AMC’s critically-acclaimed historical drama, ‘Turn’. Karen also appeared on hit shows such as ‘Strong Medicine’, ‘Vampire Diaries’, ‘Saved by The Bell’, ‘Judging Amy’ and ‘Ally McBeal‘, to name a few.
Karen blends natural talent with the deep desire to do good things with that talent. Consequently, she finds it monumentally important to be involved in the creation and production of thought-provoking and inspirational entertainment for television, big screen and stage. In 2018, Karen formed her own independent production company, Earth Mother Entertainment (learn more here), with the purpose of positively impacting not only the entertainment industry, but the World.
An absolute lover of live theatre, Karen has received numerous accolades over the years for her live stage performances. Last year she took to the stage again under the direction of Zadia Ife, where she turned out riveting performances in the Off-Broadway production of “Ciao Bella”, a two-character drama with music that she wrote and produced. She said that she is still reeling from the experience and is looking forward to her next live stage performance. Down the road, Karen would like to workshop “The Shoe”, a musical that she wrote several years ago and shelved. She recently decided to take off the shelf and produce it in New York. The story is very loosely based on the children’s nursery rhyme, The Old Woman in The Shoe.
