Click to Learn More About Karen

Karen began her insurance career in 1987 with Crum and Forster Personal Insurance after graduating from Wake Forest University with a BA in economics. She found insurance fascinating and enjoyable from the start, moving onto Bankers and Shippers Insurance in Burlington, where she worked in product management and customer service.

In 1995, Karen left the company for a position with Professional Insurance Consultants, discovering her niche in the agency side of the business. She loves representing companies and delivering products and services to clients, as well as working with clients to help with their insurance needs. Almost 13 years later she purchased the agency. It was a natural transition and she has never looked back. The agency later became Encore Insurance Advisors, still an independent agency with many options to offer.

Karen has two grown sons, is married, and loves everything outside, including golf, gardening, skiing, hiking and more.
