Karen Gebhardt joined the FP Inc. team in June of 2021 and quickly made herself a valuable team member, taking over responsibility of all phone operations and reception duties. Karen’s strong customer service acumen is due to both her warm and friendly personality as well as 28 years of experience working in advertising and customer service for the Bellingham Herald.

Karen holds a degree from WWU in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing.

Outside of work, Karen enjoys walking the Lake Padden trails with her two dogs (Tikka and Bear) and golfing with friends and family: husband (David) and two daughters (Kaitlin and Ally). In fact, the Gebhardt family hosts an annual charity golf tournament benefitting Hospice in honor of Karen’s mother-in-law. May of 2021 marked 22 years of successful tournaments!
