Karen is a long serving and extraordinary volunteer to the Lung Association! As a dietician for the Saskatoon Health Region and Certified Respiratory Educator (CRE) she has provided expert advice and consultation to the Lung Association on nutrition as it affects respiratory health for over 30 years. Karen began her volunteer work as the dietitian for Discovery Asthma Camp in 1988. Her interest and expertise in patient chronic disease management also lead her to contribute to The Lung Association's professional education curriculum, and she currently serves on both the Provincial board of directors and the Canadian Lung Association board.
Karen lives the Lung Association's vision: 'healthy lungs for everyone' as fitness and breathing are vitally important to her. She is an avid cyclist and downhill skier and we are pleased to have her on our team helping everyone in Saskatchewan one breath at a time.
