She was the Apple Blossom Queen of Sebastopol, California when she was a teenager.

Where Is She Now: Karen is still acting most recently she's been hitting the small theater
arena. She was in a
of "Steel Magnolias" in 2003 and got very good reviews.
Also still doing a little TV work. Some episodic roles and the occasional made
for TV role.
It's the same Hollywood story... She would love to be in more stuff, but too few
roles are being offered to her. Tough getting roles when you're over 50 AND a
woman. And with Karen I think she has an even more difficult time, because most
remember her as the perky, young girl.
