Community Services Director is in charge of the Family Aquatic Center, senior services, community center and more

Name: Karen Carmen

Hometown: Cleveland

Occupation: Community Services Director,

Favorite thing about her job: That's easy...our seniors! I love staging events for them. Thinking of an idea, working on making it happen and seeing people enjoy your efforts is always a thrill.

Proudest accomplishment: Most recent proudest moment is the last April. We had 4,500 attendees and over 120 vendors.  

My all-time favorite is Opening Day at the Beachwood Council and the Mayor poured water from all the seven continents into the pool. It took months to secure the water samples. My most challenging was Antartica...but I got it!

Why she went into her field: I've always been a planner. I started planning my own birthday parties in grade school. I like to organize and make "to do" lists.

You may not know: I've completed three half marathons and I am a huge Survivor fan.
