About Karen

Ms. Karen Grannas is the Director of Compliance at Towson University. Karen formerly worked as the Chief Operating Officer of. Open Door Before and After School Care, a Baltimore County based before and after school care organization.

The mission of Open Door was to provide quality school age care, recognizing the role of that care in today's family. I am proud to be a part of a team that recognizes the importance of providing quality programming as well as a nurturing environment for the children in families needing before and after school childcare. After 30 years in public education, the opportunity to be COO of Open Door is perfect as it provides me with an opportunity to continue servicing children and families by overseeing and ensuring quality programs at all Open Door Centers. All working parents want to know that their children are well taken care of while they are at work. Open Door provides that peace of mind for the parents of approximately 2300 children through outstanding programs in more than 30 schools in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Harford Counties.
