She moved to the Fort Myers area for her career and her fiancee, who had moved over to this coast as well. Sara works in Retail Management and has been in the field for over 6 years. She attended Florida State University and her background is the fashion industry. Sara initially joined the Junior League back in 2016 in Fort Lauderdale after graduating college.

Advancement Director: Position Available
Treasurer: Karen Belcher
Karen moved to Fort Myers in 2014 but grew up and had a family in Massachusetts (born in Boston, grew up in Foxboro and lived with my husband in Norfolk). I joined the Junior League of Fort Myers to make friends (I worked remotely) and to volunteer in the community (and learn about the area).
I have an undergrad degree in Business from the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth. I’ve worked with and for non-profit organizations in the database area (CRM – Customer Relationship Management and marketing) for most of my career. I retired on April 1st and plan to fill some of my time with volunteering.
Special experience or meaningful achievement: Going on a Mediterranean cruise, experiencing an excursion in each of the five ports, spending a week in a villa in Rome and visiting all of the sites (Vatican, St Peter’s Basilica, Coliseum, etc.) with my husband and nine other family members. We took three weeks off from work – amazing!
