Chair, Publicity/Outreach Committee
Monika was born in Germany where she trained as a Registered Nurse with the goal of working overseas. In 1976, she immigrated to the US.
She retrained as a Physician Assistant and has worked in the women's health care field ever since. In 2002, Monika traveled to Guatemala with a small group of volunteers, finally getting a taste of working in a third world country. She is drawn to go back and spend more time there, but, for now, her job and children keep her busy.
Member, Publicity/Outreach Committee Karen is an artist and a retired E.S.L teacher. She is art editor for Integrities and a very sous chef at 160 Sunflower—except when it comes to baking and other desserts. Then she steps to the fore. She helps on dinners and on other fund raisers. In Ontario, Canada, she helped refugees with the problems of settlement and with the family and personal problems that arose in their new lives.
