Karen Scott

Born and raised in Washington State, Karen Scott brings over a decade of accounting experience in addition to many years in customer service. While Karen is recognized for her financial understanding and attention to detail, Karen would say her most significant achievement is raising her two children, daughter Lacee, who holds an MBA from Whitworth University, and son Zane, an award-winning glass blowing student at Alfred University in New York. Karen recently celebrated her 30th anniversary with her husband, Jon Scott (not the agency), by doing one of her favorite pastimes: traveling. When Karen is not driving around in her convertible with Jon and her two dogs, she spends her time gardening and really hopes to get back to concerts as soon as they stop getting canceled! Make sure to drop a line to Karen and say hello!
