Karyn is the middle daughter of Phillip and Marcia Pratt, and was raised in Wellsville, NY. After losing everything in a house fire in Belfast, she worked two jobs and commuted an hour daily to Alfred State College to obtain an Associates of Applied Sciences degree in Ornamental Horticulture Floriculture Merchandising. She worked for almost ten years as a floral designer at a floral shop and greenhouse in Olean. In November 2011, with a new career path in mind, she began working at the agency’s Friendship location. Karyn received her Personal Lines license in August 2012. In August of 2017 she transferred to the Wellsville location and in November obtained her Commercial Lines License.
When Karyn is not working as an insurance agent, she spends her time as Treasurer and 2nd Assistant Captain of Grant Duke Hose Co No 1 and also Treasurer of the Wellsville Fire Dept. She currently is a Certified First Responder with Andover Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Through all the hours of training over the past five years, she is currently a Rescue Technician in Rope Rescue, Swift Water, Ice Water, Confined Space, and Hazardous Materials with a Cargo Truck Specialty. Between these offices and the countless hours of training she looks forward to Bowling Night or a night with the girls for her Direct Sales job with Park Lane Jewelry.
