Karen joined the team in November 2019 to develop major donor relationships.
Since joining the charity Karen has worked closely with the Cornwall Air Ambulance Philanthropy Forum who volunteer and work tirelessly to raise money for CAAT. In May 2022 Karen took on the role of chair of the forum. Following a successful career in senior corporate banking, working with significant businesses and high net worth individuals has given Karen a wealth of experience, skills and an extensive network.
She was inspired to transform her hobby of charity fundraising into a new career and has already gained her Chartered Institute of Fundraising Diploma. Prior to her career change, Karen had personally raised over £350,000 for many local and national good causes. Proud of her Cornish roots, Karen is motivated by the compassion and community spirit shown by people in Cornwall and beyond and is an active member of St Austell & District Soroptimist.
She is thrilled to be working for this worthwhile, lifesaving charity, alongside the rest of the incredible Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust team.
