Karen Vaughan

Administration and Planning Officer

After a couple of false starts I moved from Wiltshire to West Looe with my partner, Chris, in February 2020 just before the Covid pandemic really started to affect us all. National lockdown began a couple of weeks later so I had to spend the whole spring and summer at home and exploring lovely Looe – things could have been worse! After a few months of temping in St Austell, I joined the Town Council in early 2021 and I love working with all my colleagues here to contribute to what’s going on in our town.

My career background is mainly in Human Resources, training and organisational development and my last ‘proper’ job before moving was at a Borough Council in Hampshire. Prior to that I spent 10 years with Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service in several People Management and Development roles.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, live music, weekends away in our camper van, and we’ve recently purchased a kayak to start exploring on the water too.
