After graduating from Fanshawe College in 1992 with a diploma in Interior Design, Karen continued her Design education by receiving her NCIDQ certificate by passing a North American wide exam in 2002. Passing that exam is a requirement of becoming a Registered Interior Designer in Ontario.
In 2005, Karen wrote another exam and received her Building Code Identification Number for house and small buildings up to 600 square meters (6458 square feet). This registration permits her to engage in the business of providing design activities to the public subject to the Ontario Building Code and therefore will have her BCIN# on all construction drawings and blueprints being submitted for permit.
