Karn had the privilege of hearing Bill Strickland speak after taking a leap of faith and leaving her 20-year career at Maritime Travel to pursue an MBA. Strickland’s words inspired her pursuit to continually “do the right thing” as he has done. As such, Karn is committed to helping MCCL achieve its goals within the community. She is vice president of the Saint Mary’s University MBA Society as well as president of Families with Children from China Nova Scotia. Karn resides in Hubley with her husband and two children.
