Position and time at Graco: Sr. Demand Planner, four years

Growing up, I always dreamed of being: A scientist, until I realized I could not memorize the periodic table.

If I starred on “America’s Got Talent,” my act would be: Tweeting, feel free to follow me @gracoKaren. I love being social.

The most adventurous thing I’ve ever done: White water rafting (class 3-4 rapids ) in a single person kaijak. After losing my kaijak for the third time in a row I wanted to WALK out, but after a few deep breaths I was back in the kaijak to tackle the rest of the river.

My ideal vacation would be: A fully inclusive beach resort.

Favorite childhood memory: Receiving a book from my book of the month club and him reading it to me. As I got older and learned to read, I then read the book to him.

Dish of choice when dining out: Chicken marsala

Favorite product and why: My son’s Graco Quattro Tour stroller. It goes everywhere with us and has a place for drinks, big basket for shopping and is easy to push.
