Karen Flindall

Communications Coordinator


A graduate of McMaster University, Karen's early career was in marketing and communication for an accounting firm. More recently, Karen worked on the Ontario Augmented Reality Network (OARN) project. She started working at CAIS in 2012, helping with accreditation reports on a part-time basis. Karen loves working with everyone on the CAIS team, and after the OARN project was complete, she began spending more time working for CAIS, taking on additional responsibilities such as the Top 12. As the mother of two teenagers, she is very interested in education, and she is thrilled to be assuming the communications and research role this fall.

In her spare time, Karen loves hiking with her family, including her dog, Scout.
