Karen Lasorda
Karen LasordaPenn Community Bank
With over 30 years in financial services, Karen Lasorda currently serves as a Commercial Lender for Bucks County-based Penn Community Bank, a position she has held for the last four years. In her role with Penn Community Bank, she worked closely with Bristol Riverside Theatre during the COVID-19 pandemic to meet their banking needs, including supporting the organization’s application for and reception of a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. This wasn’t Karen’s first interaction with the theater. As a past member of the board of directors of Foundations Community Partnership, she was familiar with the important role BRT plays in the Lower Bucks arts community. She even notes that her granddaughter participated in the organization’s acting programs. Elsewhere in the community, Karen volunteers her time as a member of the Doylestown Rotary, treasurer of the Bucks County Economic Development Corporation, and as part of the Heritage Conservancy’s Business Partners Committee. A former member of the board of directors of NOVA, she continues to be involved in the organization and remains passionate about their work on behalf of victims of crime. In her free time, Karen enjoys fishing, boating and spending time with family. She is an avid football and baseball fan, and holds a second degree black belt in karate. Karen is the mother of three daughters and five step children, and grandmother to six grand kids and nine step grandchildren – and say her large family motivates her in everything she does. She lives in Doylestown.
