current board of directors
KAren troup-galley - clubhouse director
Karen Troup-Galley began her Clubhouse career 20 years ago at a small program on Cape Cod, MA in the Culinary unit. Karen feels this was a great place to start and similar to growing up in a large Italian family - everything was centered around food and creating amazing meals was just a small part. After a few years Karen was sent to Fountain House in NYC (the first Clubhouse founded in the 1940s). Clubhouse training changed Karen's life and within 6 months she packed everything she owned and moved to NYC to work at Fountain House. Over the next 10 years she worked in several units but her passion was working with Colleagues from around the world. Karen became a trainer in the Clubhouse model which allowed her to travel and spend 6 months training in London, England. Karen, her husband, and her son relocated from Cape Cod 2 years ago and enjoy living in the Raleigh Area. Karen is the program director at Club Horizon and a non-voting member of the board.
