Karen Cinelli

Human Resources Manager

Karen Cinelli began working for Bryan 27 years ago, as her summer job while attending Texas A&M University. She went on to a career as a medical practice administrator and physician consultant. After having children, she returned to work for Bryan and has been with Texas Retirement Headquarters since 2009. 

As an adoptive parent and former foster parent, Karen is active with several organizations that focus on children who age out of the foster care system, as well as acting as a mentor for families going through the adoption process. She also has served as president of the San Antonio Gladney Family Association, leading their charitable and social endeavors for adoptive families.

After 15 years as San Antonio residents, Karen and her family relocated to just outside of Des Moines, Iowa in 2020. We are all thankful for the age of telecommuting and Zoom meetings!
