Meet the Team
Karen Carlson, B.A.
Staff Accountant, Grant and Contracts Manager
Finance and Administration
I am a member of Point Blue’s Finance Team, happily crunching numbers at our Petaluma headquarters. I also provide administration for our contracts and grants, particularly with regard to the financial aspects. This is much more fascinating than it sounds! Even a protracted Liberal Arts education (History / Philosophy, Mills College) did nothing to dampen my ardent appreciation of the dependable elegance of accounting.
As an avid hiker and wave rider, I am especially delighted to support Point Blue’s conservation mission. I moonlight as the coach of the Wildcats, a wiffleball team composed of adults with developmental disabilities, and I spend my free time coaxing my friends and my three grown children to join me in the ocean, and on the trails of West Marin.
