Brownies with frosting
Karen Egeberg started at CCEC in 2003 as the engineering and operations administrative assistant, where she worked closely with the engineering team and primarily created service orders. In 2013, she moved into the executive assistant role. In this position, Karen worked with the CEO, management staff, and the board of directors in the administrative and governance areas of the cooperative. In retirement, she is looking forward to spending time with her husband Roger, daughters, and grandchildren, Waylon and Presley. She says that she will miss her coworkers most of all. CCEC wishes Karen the best in her retirement! Some of Karen’s family’s favorite recipes were featured in our October issue of Highline Notes.
