Karen Adelstein bio

I have been a member of SCNV since 2013 and have supported the Club as Treasurer for the past six years. Serving as Treasurer allowed me to work closely with every member on the Board as well as many other members who graciously volunteer their time and energy to support our programs. I have also assisted with several other Board committees, such as Testing and Special Events.

My involvement with SCNV led me to pursue training to become a future competition accountant with USFSA. I have assisted with the accounting at several competitions as well as the organization and planning of SCNV’s Cardinal Classic. Being on the other side of a competition has been a fun and welcome new perspective from my role as Mom to a competitive singles skater. My daughter, Lexi, has been a member of SCNV for 12 years, coming to Fairfax Ice Arena at age 5. Both of us consider SCNV home.

I have a BS degree in accounting from the University of Illinois. After working as an auditor for several years in Phoenix, AZ, I returned to school and earned my Masters in Health Administration and Policy from the George Washington University. I have been in the DC area since 1992 where I met my husband, Jonathan. We currently live in Arlington with our daughter and two precious pups, Oakly, a Golden Retriever and Axel, a Havanese. Our older son is a sophomore at college.
