Hello and welcome to Kansas! I’m Karen Gideon and I am a native Kansan, raised in Wichita and moved to Topeka in the early 1980’s. In my youth I spent lots of time in rural Kingman County visiting my great uncle and aunt on their farm. I have lots of fond memories of their large hay barn and of turning over rocks in the creek beds to see if I could discover an arrowhead or a hidden treasure. Being naturally curious and trained with a scientific background (I’m a former RN, BSN) I love investigating and digging through all sorts of places and figuring out how they relate in our world. My love for discovering untold mysteries and imagining the history behind them was born on the farm in Kingman, KS.
