Karen currently leads the National Dairy KE Team. She joined AHDB in 2018 covering a DairyLeader maternity role in Northern England. Based in North Staffordshire, for 15 years before joining AHDB she was full-time beef and sheep farming, established a contract calf rearing business and two additional farm diversification businesses, while being at home with her children.

Her early career began with an Animal Physiology and Nutrition degree from Leeds University, followed by work as a nutritional scientist with ADAS Drayton’s Feed Evaluation Unit and the Dairy Hygiene Inspectorate. In 2003, she graduated from the University of Liverpool with a PhD in Veterinary Clinical Science, having spent four years researching and treating lameness in dairy cattle. 

Since growing up on a small dairy and beef farm in Ireland, sustainable livestock farming and working with people has always been at the centre of life for Karen. She thoroughly enjoys working with AHDB and appreciates the opportunity it provides to work with like-minded people who make a difference and support hard-working farmers throughout the UK.
