Karen Chason, Operations Manager, Rose Library

“I always wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up.” – Karen Chason

Karen Chason is the new operations manager for the Rose Library. Before coming to Emory, she worked for 2+ years as an executive assistant to the Global SVP and Associate General Counsel for Endeavor/IMG, a global sports and entertainment firm. She also spent 12 years as an admin assistant at the Goizueta Business School.

Born in LA (“Lower Alabama”), she also lived in Dallas, TX, south Georgia, and middle Georgia, before moving to Atlanta 30 years ago. She studied history at the University of Alabama.

Karen loves books, history, preservation, archeology (“I always wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up”), and travel. She is also a former softball player, gymnast, and competitive roller skater. “Seriously. It was the 80’s. Don’t judge me,” says Karen. She also enjoys podcasts, music, old movies, fancy pens and stationery, and her ginger kitty named Stringer Bell, named after a character in HBO’s “The Wire.”
