KAREN S. WALDROP

Chief Operations Officer

Karen obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from OSU in Marketing/Business while working full-time.  These jobs gave her a variety of court and law firm experiences. Who knew 30+ years later when she entered Franklin County that she’d still be here!  She began her public sector career in Common Pleas General as a Bailiff for over 13 years; Court of Appeals; Federal Court; back to the County Recorder’s; and most recently helping run the Franklin County Probate Court.  She is excited to be at the GSB helping the community, especially because she is seeing the program through which her old boss, Judge Montgomery at Probate Court, created through ORC 2101.026.
