We recently caught up with Karen to ask her a few questions:    

Karen Miller was born in Oceanside, California at Camp Pendleton. She attended Phillips Exeter Academy and is a graduate of Wesleyan University. Karen says it took a few careers (at Lord & Taylor and Merrill Lynch) to figure out her passion. For 18 years she coached field hockey, squash and tennis at Greenwich Academy. An avid and accomplished squash player, Karen travelled the world with the Men’s and Women’s U.S. Squash Team as Manager and Assistant Coach 1999-2008 and played on the U.S. Women’s Squash Team in the 2000 Pan Am Federation Cup in Brazil.
