PLYMOUTH PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS WOMEN
Plymouth Professional Business Women's Recognition Banquet recognized Karene Boos
on Tuesday, April 9th at Amore.
PBW President, Michelle Manthey and PBW Treasurer, Deb Friederichs, nominated Karene Boos.
Karene Boos came to our group a few years ago as a member of our community looking to broaden her women’s network.
She thought the Plymouth Professional Business Women’s group was a great way to meet more women in the area.
Karene became an active member and shared her passions during our meetings. She also presented on a non-profit co-founded by her and her husband called Zeru Zeru. (Learn more at https://www.savethealbinochildren.org/)
When you think of the past 4-5 years we’ve known Karene, we would use the following words to describe her:
She also raised her family with the same beliefs to help others and her family is heavily involved in their non-profit, ZeruZeru, Inc. and they have all traveled and lived in Tanzania throughout their lives. Her and her husband started ZeruZeru, Inc, with the primary objective to build and support a safe-haven, self-sustainable campus in Lamadi, Tanzania for up to 100 children suffering from albinism and physical difficulties. They both traveled to Tanzania on multiple occasions to work with Sister there in the orphanage and building a school to teach others and protect the albino children.
Most recently, she embarked on a new chapter as Clinical Assistant Profession of Physical Therapy at Carroll University.
We truly believe Karene is deserving of the nomination for PBW’s Women of the Year. She is the epitome of a great role model.
Congratulations Karene Boos on being selected as our 2019 Woman of the Year!
