Karin is the Office Coordinator for the Geography Department and provides administrative support to geography's graduate & undergraduate degrees and the Graduate Certificate Program in Geographic Information Systems.
Karin grew up in the Pacific Northwest; Oregon, Washington & British Columbia. She has earned two degrees at PSU, and was the first to graduate with a Master's degree from the Conflict Resolution program. She ran an inter-agency mediation program for four years before returning to PSU in 2006 to coordinate the Geography Department. As an avid world traveller, a dedicated recycler and lover of nature, she has definitely found 'her people' amongst the geography faculty and students.
