Karen Meyer received her undergraduate degree in Education from the Ohio State University-Lima campus, then she taught elementary school children before taking a break to have her own children. When she returned to the work force, she focused on adult education, teaching GED programs at Lima Senior High School and the Apollo Career Center. She decided to return to OSU-Lima to earn a Master's degree in Education, with a focus on learning disabilities. She started the Learning Center at the University of Northwestern Ohio, then returned to her alma mater in 1998 where she has since served as an academic advisor and the Coordinator for Disability Services. Because of those roles, she serves on the campus' Diversity Committee, where she has been able to advocate for disabled members of the OSU-Lima community. She describes a supportive and respectful working environment, though she mentions certain challenges that come with working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
