Meet Karen

KAREN HAND JENNS BLAH BLAH BLOG TEAM 150x150 The GalsMy name is Karen Hand, and I am so excited to be part of Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog.  By biblical standards, I am young, by any other standards, I am young at heart.  Married to my wonderful husband Kenny for 29 years.  I have two children and two step children.  My children are all adults; all are within five years apart in age, and all married with families of their own.  I have seven grandchildren in total.

I am a certified paralegal, having worked within the legal community most of my life, holding positions as Deputy Clerk of Courts for the Municipal Court system in Indianapolis, Indiana prior to being promoted to Bailiff for the same court system.  Several years later, my husband’s job was transferred to Pennsylvania.

Following our move to Pennsylvania, I accepted a position as Office Manager for a local law firm, which I held until we were transferred to Michigan.  In Michigan, I held another Office Manager position with another local law firm.  And, our last transfer was to the beautiful state of Florida, where we currently reside.  After our move to Florida, I accepted a position as a Paralegal in another local law firm and held that position for 12 years, until I decided to retire in July of 2011.

I am looking forward to a bright future with Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog and all of its followers.
