Founder & Executive Director
Carey’s inspiration for Her Haven came while working on high-end residential design projects in Fairfield County, when she realized that those who could most benefit from the gifts of design were those who may not have access to or the means to hire a designer. Her Haven was “born” in 2012.
While Carey is humbled by the amount of support Her Haven has received and by the lives it has touched, her biggest source of pride is her two teenage daughters who challenge, amuse and inspire her! She lives with them and her husband in Monroe, CT.
Karen met Carey Dougherty at a student meeting and knew immediately that she wanted to be involved with Her Haven. Serving as a student designer in one of Her Haven’s early projects, Karen has continued to be involved with Her Haven and joined the board to put her business experience to use for the organization.
Karen is a graduate of the Bucknell University where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and WCSU where she received her master’s degree in Mathematics. She lives in Gaylordsville, CT with her husband and golden retriever, visiting her kids and grandkids whenever possible.
Her Haven’s projects have been a platform for many wonderful opportunities to make a difference in so many peoples’ lives.
Jenine brings deep compassion and care to Her Haven’s board and to its endeavors. Her career prior to being a stay-at-home mom was in Human Resources where she came to understand that the dedication of people working together towards the same goal is a powerful force. Jenine is an Interior Designer and brings that experience to many Her Haven projects. She has 3 children and lives in Fairfield.
