Congratulations Trusted Advisor and Board Member Karen Brown!

A huge congratulations to our Board member Karen Brown who was just named as a top Trusted Advisor by the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles Business Journals!

Karen has served on the Board since 2014 and is truly dedicated to our organization and serving military families. As a member of the fund development committee, she is always looking for creative ways to bring new donors to our organization. Karen has chaired the Builder’s Ball committee for two years in a row, resulting in our most successful Ball yet this past February. She also holds the special position as being the only board member to go Over the Edge at last year’s rappelling event. She fundraised for her opportunity to go down the side of a 25-story building, and is even sponsoring other family members to do so at this year’s event!


Karen brings her 30+ years of banking experience to the organization by providing invaluable input when it comes to the organization’s financial matters. She is currently Senior Vice President and Commercial Team Leader for First Bank who have also been huge supporters of our organization.

In her interview with the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles Business Journals, Karen said that becoming a trusted advisor comes with knowing and anticipating any hurdles, having a sense of urgency, and understanding your clients. It comes with respect and dignity between all parties. It is with this same dedication and grace that she brings to our Board and serving our veterans.
