Karen is a contributor to iMore.com as a writer 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.) She also did some freelance work for Macworld and currently freelances at CNET. 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 nine 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!
