Cousin Karen is the newest member of the inner circle at American Jewelry and Loan, sharing duties with Ashley as the shop's new jewelry co-manager. Karen and the Golds have been close since she married into the clan 15 years ago. She looks at Uncle Les as a surrogate father and role model, and Les sees her as a second daughter. Her charm and ready smile make Karen a born salesperson and a welcome addition to HARDCORE PAWN. And, with 15 years of experience in the banking industry, her expertise in finance will help the family as they look for new ways to expand their empire.
