As Business Development Manager, and a natural people person, Karen enjoys networking and building relationships, whether it is at an AIA Board meeting, a community event, or a fundraiser for one of Santa Barbara’s numerous non-profits.  She is the initial contact for many of the leads coming into the company and is also responsible for managing Allen Construction’s sustainable building training and green business operations.

Prior to joining Allen Construction, Karen worked at the Community Environmental Council managing pollution prevention programs and, before that, as a Planner for the County of Santa Barbara; jobs that brought skills and connections to Allen Construction.

When not at work, Karen enjoys being out of doors, whether that is hiking, cycling, stand-up paddling, golfing, or traveling with family and friends.
