Karen Alberg Grossman

Editor in chief. A 'Type A' workaholic who drinks about 8 cups of coffee a day, she’s up at 4:30 a.m. and on her computer by 5:00. She hates gyms and refuses to exercise. Her passion is meeting with interesting people in the industry and discovering what makes them tick. She would be a much better interviewer if she learned to keep her mouth shut and let the other person talk. She doesn’t like change: she’s had the same husband for 45 years, the same house, the same job, the same hairstyle, the same color lipstick... She hates technology! She loves the ocean and swears she was a mermaid in a former life. She loves yoga (but not in a studio, only on the beach). Her favorite meal is a swiss cheeseburger and fries, accompanied by her favorite drink—Jack Daniels and ginger ale. She lived in Paris for two years right after college, where she learned to speak French, drink wine and savor life. She apologizes for all the Facebook photos of Victoria, Max, JJ, Benjamin and Emma, her five beautiful and brilliant grandchildren. She loves hanging out with her 95-year-old mom and all the seniors at Sunrise Senior Living: with age comes wisdom!
