TV3 Unit Office Staff


Karen Ijams
Administrative Assistant

I have been a part of the Tri-Valley district since the fall of 2008.  I love coming to work each day and having the privilege to work with such an incredible group of people.  My husband, Chad, and I have been married for 5 years.  Between the two of us, we have four children (all girls!).  My girls, Kirstin and Madison, attend Tri-Valley High School.   I was born and raised in Heyworth.  


In the summer of 2013, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business, with emphasis in accounting.  I enjoy the outdoors, especially in the spring when it is time to plant flowers!  We are St. Louis Cardinal fans at our house, with a little Manning football rivalry between an avid Colts fan and a newly turned Broncos Fan.

District Bookkeeper/Treasurer

I joined the Tri-Valley staff in 2000.  I have three children which have all graduated from Tri-Valley, Brandi (‘09 TV grad), Holly (‘11) and Lucas (‘14). Brandi is a college graduate from Southern Illinois University.  She graduated with a degree in Marketing and a degree in Management in 2013. She is now living in Las Vega and working at a Marketing/Advertising Firm.  Holly is a senior at College of Coastal Georgia in Brunswick GA.  She had been playing Volleyball for the college and is in her final year of Nursing and will graduate this Spring. Lucas is attending Missouri State University in Springfield Missouri.  


My husband Jess and I enjoy the outdoors, spending time at our family lake house at Lake Bloomington and are traveling to Vegas, Georgia and Missouri often!l
