Karen Van Den Bloomer
Hi! I am Karen Van Den Bloomer and I am a General Manager for Christian Servants Home Care. I have always loved helping people. In high school, I volunteered at a local nursing home to organize games for the residents two nights a week. Since 2000, I have been involved with Special Olympics WI and volunteer my time on the Game Management Team for the Fox Valley chapter helping with Athletes and volunteers during events.
While my grandmother was still around, I spent a lot of my time with her. She taught me how to crochet, cross-stitch, and make amazing polish donuts. When she was forced to leave her home, it was the hardest moment for her. She wanted to stay independent but at the time, home care was not accepted a mode for insurance. I can only imagine how happy she would have been if I was able to set her up with my team so she could stay home.
It was in her memory that I joined CSHC. I saw how valuable their mission is. “We will follow God’s will by providing exceptional care to those in need within the broken home-care industry, while simultaneously providing income to support our families and communities.” Having deep Christian values myself, I saw this position as an opportunity to share those values with your loved ones.
Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband, Shane. Shane and I have been married for a little over 16 year and have two kids, a son, Dominik and daughter, Shayna. Our kids are like a rainbow on a rainy day; they brighten the world with their smiles. We love to get together and play video games or board games as a family pastime.
My favorite pastime is learning new things. I have a master’s degree in business and plan on furthering my education with a PhD.
