Karen Drapers moved to the Seattle area from her native Netherlands 22 years ago. She is a graphic designer; ski instructor during the winter season; and she teaches fourth-grade students at the Dutch school on Saturdays. Karen spends a great amount of time volunteering for Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild, Dutch Seattle Club and WMS.
Karen is a familiar face at WMS, as all her three daughters attended WMS up to eighth grade. She also volunteered in the classroom and was a teacher assistant in the Early Childhood program.
In addition to her professional and voluntary work, Karen enjoys painting, photography, travel, walking her big dog and cheering on her kids at their various sports activities.
