Karen Ferrero


I am originally from Coal City, attended Bradley University, and have now lived in Morris since 2004. My husband and I have two boys, Dominic (15) and Nicholas (14). Dominic was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2 and later diagnosed with IED at the age of 12. Professionally, I am a Consulting Practice Leader for Box and have enjoyed a 20+ year career in technology, working at Netscape, Sun Microsystems, Microsoft, and Cisco.

Personally, I am passionate about giving back and advocating for people with disabilities. I serve on the board of directors for Easterseals Joliet Region, in addition to Special Connections of Grundy County. I am always happy to talk with other parents who may need support or have questions about resources or advocating for their special needs children. You can contact me directly at
