Karen Dalton, Finance Director

(MMA CBl C Parent)

​My name is Karen Dalton. I’m a proud Mom to my son Michael who was diagnosed with MMA Cobalamin C at 6 months of age. At the time, there wasn’t  Newborn Screening for MMA, so he was undiagnosed for a long time. This in turn set him back quite a bit and because of the late diagnosis he suffered brain damage. We were so happy to connect with many families through OAA and NORD shortly after Michael was diagnosed. Of course, all correspondence was via mail or phone calls. We didn’t have Google or the world wide web available. Can you imagine?

I have volunteered helping Kathy at the conferences which has been so rewarding! I love meeting new families and hearing their stories. I have also volunteered for Habit for Humanity, The American Horticultural Society and the Minnesota State Fair when I was a Master Gardener and Tree Care advisor with our local community. Currently, I am a senior stylist with Stitch Fix, an online personal styling service. I look forward to serving on the board of directors with OAA.
