Administration | Office Manager

Years ago,  Ed Sausman approached Karen about a position at SIA. Today, she feels blessed to work for a family owned and operated business who invests in their employees and values relationships. She enjoys the variety that each day brings as she serves as office manager.

Karen and her husband Whitey, live in Mifflintown with their corgi pup Dzus, and take pride in their home that was built by her father and brothers. They are also very proud of their two sons, Jonathan and Jordan and their families.  Granchildren, Jacsen and Karleigh add joy to life.

Out of the office, you might find Karen spending some quiet time on her back porch, going on a walk or hike with Whitey, or taking in some dirt track racing.

If you know Karen on a personal basis, you probably know that she likes the color yellow, sharing smiley faces, and sending cards filled with confetti. Her goal in life is to make a difference in the lives of others.
