Her networking, leadership skills, and creative ideas will propel us into continued growth for our community.
Outside of her professional life, Kari is actively involved with her community through a variety of organizations. She is an integral part of the Seitzland Junior Rifle Team where she helps to organize and score local, state, and national matches, establishes herself as point of contact for registration with the American Legion, CMP, and team members, as well as orchestrates travel logistics for the team. Kari is a passionate supporter of 4H and The Farmyard, a local agritourism hotspot. She is also a member of Hereford Volunteer Fire Department, Pine Grove UMC/UMW, and a locally ranked trivia team. Her proudest accomplishment, however, is being a full-time mom to her two daughters, Madison and Carlee.
