Karen Charney (Webmaster). Karen is a freelance webdesigner and has been FredParent's webmaster since 2005, when publisher Leigh Anne Van Doren strong-armed sweet-talked her into the job. Thankfully, the internet is portable, since she's a Marine wife and moved every few years. She's updated the FPM website from homes in North Carolina and Hawaii, and from hotel rooms in Italy, Germany, France, California, and Arizona. Karen has a BS in German business from Penn State, is a proud Marine wife of 22 years, and has 2 college-aged boys.
