Karen Flindall

Communications & Marketing Coordinator


A graduate of McMaster University, Karen's early career was in marketing and communication for an accounting firm. She started working at CAIS in 2012, helping with accreditation reports on a part-time basis. At that time, she was also working on the Ontario Augmented Reality Network (OARN) project (a very cool joint initiative between Brock University and Innovate Niagara). Karen loves working with everyone on the CAIS team, so after the OARN project was complete, she began spending more time working for CAIS, taking on additional responsibilities such as the Top 12, and in 2018 she joined the team full-time. 
Karen loves hiking with her family, including her dog Scout, rock climbing, spinning, and travelling in her spare time.
