Karsen has a business degree in Event Management from Champlain College, located in Burlington, Vermont. She has lived across the country in Connecticut, New York, Oregon and Indiana, as well as a semester spent studying abroad in Florence, Italy. During her college years, she co-ran a baking business, called Treat Yourself. After, she worked at a catering and event company, and fell in love with wedding planning.
In late 2014, Karsen left New England and moved downtown to the big city of Cleveland, Ohio. She is the Director of Dining and Events and Wedding Planner at Columbia Hills Golf & Swim Club, a private country club in Columbia Station.
She joined ILEA in 2016 and quickly became a part of the Communications Committee. She is thrilled to now be a part of the Cleveland board, and brings with her a zest and enthusiasm for any and everything events related!
