Karen is a contributor to iMore.com as a writer, social media manager, and co-host of the iMore Show. She’s been writing about Apple since 2010 with a year-long break to work at an Apple Store as a product specialist.
Before joining iMore in 2018, Karen wrote for AppAdvice (mostly about App Store apps and Apple product accessories) and WatchAware (all about the Apple Watch.) Karen writes a lot of accessory roundups and reviews for iMore, plus occasional how-tos and editorials. She’s an early adopter who used to wait in long lines on release days before pre-ordering made things much quicker and easier, but still kind of misses lining up with the other Apple enthusiasts.
Karen is a wife and mom (and dog mom) who is also a part-time teacher. She loves to travel and is always looking for the best portable tech and accessories so she can work from anywhere in the world. She works as a movie extra whenever possible and has done eight films so far, including Cherry on Apple TV+. Karen earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degree from University of Michigan and remains a big fan, so Go Blue!
