Karen Carlson

Staff Accountant, Grant, and Contracts Manager

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.
