Karen Ballengee Bio Pic As the Assistant Instructional Technology Specialist at VALRC, I work on 508 compliance, assist with the website, create graphics, and assist with technology projects. I have a B.A. in music education from Shepherd University (WV), an M.Ed. in instructional technology from North Carolina State University, and a certificate in graphic design technology from Hagerstown Community College (MD). I am currently pursuing an Ed.S. in educational technology with an emphasis on learning technologies and design at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Before working at VALRC, I was a clarinet player in the U.S. Army music program. I played music in 23 countries and 18 states and lived in Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Germany. I am originally from Maryland and just purchased my first home in Hanover County. In what little spare time I have, I enjoy reading, spoiling my handsome Pomeranian, and playing various woodwind instruments in local music groups.
