Today we’d like to introduce you to Karen Jones.

Karen, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Growing up in inner-city Philadelphia, Service was always part of my life, on the receiving end. From involvement with the Boys and Girls Club, Girls Scouts, United Way and Salvation Army Programs. I am very blessed for all of the wonderful people and my mom that poured into me their love, their faith and their gifts which helped me to have a strong foundation of community.

I also started my love of Science at an early age and attended an Agriculture High School just outside Philadelphia, and prior to graduating from College with a degree in Chemistry, I volunteered in the lab at the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office. After graduation, I moved to Dallas, Texas with family and started my career with Abbott in Research and Development. I recently retired from Abbott in 2016 after 33 years and while working at Abbott I continued supporting my community by volunteering with various groups involving youth.
