Employee Spotlight – Karen Fletcher

Karen Fletcher holds a unique position at Purdy-McGuire. She tackles the huge task of keeping track of professional engineering licenses and CEUs for 13 PEs, and ensures that membership in any industry affiliations (company or individual) are current. She books travel, and supports Accounting in several ways as well. But her creative side surfaces when she plans special events and interacts with our clients. Karen has a real flair for decorating – she’s good at making something that looks “ok” look WOW.   Fortunately for PMI, she willingly and tirelessly gives of herself. Thank you, Karen, for all you do. and for sharing a bit about yourself.

  1. I love shopping, retail, decorating, and crafting – Dianne (PMI’s recently-retired CEO) and I owned a gift store for 15 years in Carrollton, and before that I worked for Happy Happy Hallmark for five years.
  1. Traveling is a passion of mine. I have been to Africa, France, London, Bahamas, and many Caribbean isles and well as 22 states in the US. In fact, last year (2015), I attended a friend’s wedding in Amberley, England at the famous Amberley Castle – it was a real life “fairy tale!”
  1. I am a Certified Personal Trainer through Coopers Clinic and am also certified to teach many cardio classes including Spin.
  1. I used to street cycle with a friend we would reach up to 50-60 mph at a time, several times a week. We would start in Lewisville and ride the back roads all the way to Denton.
  1. I competed in nine bodybuilding competitions and brought home over a dozen trophies, including two swords (which is the overall prize). Now they are collecting dust. LOL
  1. I have led many, many (MANY) committees (PTA, Booster Clubs, Metrocrest Chamber, my daughters sorority, Dallas Safari Club, etc.), and have served as co-chair and vice-president. I even wore the president’s hat a couple of times (the things we do for our children…)
  1. Silly fact – eight years in a row, I spent my birthday in Lubbock, Texas (LBK as we like to call it)!!  And I’ve attended four Texas Tech graduations with one more to go!!! GO Raiders!!
  1. I absolutely LOVE the beach!!! I could spend all my time being a sun bunny! I snorkel, take long walks, hunt for sea shells for my collection, and I even take some sand! Can you believe I can’t really swim? But the great thing about the ocean is that you can float…
  1. I enjoy scrapbooking – I started when my son was about a year old and to this day I have about 25 + albums and am still going strong!
  1. I have two beautiful children who are both married, two nieces (that I helped raise) who are both married, and am the proud aunt/great aunt to 13 nieces and nephews (and one on the way). They’ve nicknamed me “Sissy,” which I cherish because it was given to me by my late brother when he was two years old.
