Karen and her family moved to the Border 4 years ago to move closer to her husband Matt’s family and to follow their dream of owning a winery on the lake.
A dream which she had initially thought impossible however, her partner Matt was determined to prove her wrong.
Their dream came alive in 2015 with their very first vintages being hand crafted, hand wrapped and hand tied: Posh Plonk was now alive.
Karen is passionate about helping others to be their best and follow their dreams. Since moving to the Border she has had the privilege of supporting others through her involvement with the Business Women Albury Wodonga (BWAW) mentor program and is now a member of the (BWAW) Committee.
Maintaining strong business partnerships is also important to Karen while she continues her fulltime career with Mars. Here she leads an amazing team of people to achieve their personal and professional goals. What an honour!
“We are so fortunate to live within this great community and participating in Stars of the Border is just another small way that I can contibute. To all of those who do an outstanding job within our community, caring for those directly and indirectly impacted by cancer - Thankyou for your generosity, dedication and compassion!”
