HBI’s Director of Operations, Karen Falkenstein Casabonne, came to Perú as a nurse with a background in critical and emergency care, to serve as a long-term volunteer in the Arequipa clinic of our good friend, Father Alex. As HBI was forming over two decades ago, it was our great good fortune to recruit Karen.
Karen has been gifted with an amazing ability to connect to people through her kindness and openness, and her reliability to get things done. From the elderly señoras of Alto Cayma to the dean of the university, Karen evokes trust and admiration.
As the Director of Operations for HBI, Karen has loaded her plate with an array of challenging tasks and proceeds to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s. She is a master at keeping track of all the trains that are running in our work.
Today we are indeed thankful for Karen and her many skills as she keeps HBI moving forward and on track to support and empower the most vulnerable.
