Born and raised in Upper Arlington, Ohio, Karen attended Ohio State University and received a bachelor’s in communications. She and John Kasich married in 1997, after he went through a divorce. She was the vice president of GSW Worldwide, but stepped down so she could focus on raising her daughters, Emma and Reese. She became first lady of Ohio in 2010. Karen Kasich is known for taking fitness very seriously, with swimming and running being a couple of her hobbies. “If I can shine a light on anything as first lady in Ohio, health would be what I’d focus on,” she said, according to “I’ve seen the effect of wellness on people’s lives, so I’m pretty passionate about it.”
