Karen has been the Finance Administrator since November 2015. During her teens Karen worked in pubs and restaurants, progressing to Assistant Manageress for two pubs by the sea. After many years of working unsociable hours, Karen decided to try working in an office. She found a 2-week temporary filing job and ended up staying for 13 years, eventually working her way up to the Senior Accounts Payable Team Leader. Working 3 days a week at Astute, Karen can now be found knee deep in payroll, invoices, debtors, expenses, statements and anything else involving numbers.
Karen has visited many countries on her wanderlust list and experienced adventures such as white water rafting, skiing, whale watching, bungee jumping, abseiling, safari, parascending and swimming with dolphins. Finally deciding to slow down the pace, Karen had her first son two weeks before her 40th birthday and now works part-time to focus on family life.
