Bulls Club Champion Member Since:
Current profession and any relevant past business experience you wish to share?
Karen is a Realtor with Smith and Associates and has been named one of the Top 25 Real Estate Agents in the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Karen has also been named Agent of the Year and Buyers Agent of the year during a career that has produced well over 100 million dollars in Sales. Karen has served as president of the Bulls Club and as Chairperson of the Iron Bulls. Karen has been a resident of Tampa since her father was stationed at MacDill AFB in the early 1960's and met her husband, Renynold at USF, and has one daughter, Michelle. Karen continues to use her wide ranging contacts to promote USF to all she meets.
What drives your motivation to be a donor and volunteer for the Bulls Club?
I have always been involved with groups that have a goal of giving back to the community and became a donor because it was the right thing to do and I believe that our future is closely tied to those who follow us. Without a younger generation armed with the skills necessary to better our collective world, there can be no future.
Favorite USF Athletics Memory?
My favorite memories of USF Athletics are many including, but not limited to, our first football game, walking out of the stadium following the overtime wins at Auburn and Miami, the win at FSU, as well as the thrill of winning an NCAA basketball tournament game in Nashville.
