Karen Watson

Karen graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Business from Central Washington University in 1985.  She worked as an Executive Secretary and Purchasing Agent with the federal government.  Karen and her husband, William, relocated frequently due to his work.  They moved to Sun City in 1995 after William retired.  She was a founding member of the West Valley Ovarian Cancer Alliance (WVOCA) Board of Directors .  She oversees pairings and registration for the annual Teal Ribbon charity Golf Tournament. The Teal Ribbon Golf Tournament has proven more successful each succeeding year as the Board works as a team.  Working with Laurel Pracht and seeing the strides made by this organization has contributed to my dedication to WVOCA and its mission.

Tana was a founding member of the West Valley Ovarian Cancer Alliance.  She felt a personal connection to the organization, and in her own words,  "I I knew I wanted to help bring awareness of this disease to the public when I learned my cousin died from ovarian cancer."
