Born on August 16, 1999, in Fremont, California, Karen Chen has a younger brother named Jeffrey, who also skates. Like most involved with the sport, she began to skate at a young age- when she was just six years old. With hard work and determination, she eventually made it to the national level by the time she was twelve.
With more training, she eventually made her junior international debut at the ISU Junior Grand Prix during the 2013-14 season. After winning bronze, she qualified for the JPJ Final. Due to a tibia fracture which she sustained during one of her practice sessions, however, she was forced to withdraw from the event. Many months later, she returned for the 2014 World Junior Championships, where she finished ninth overall.
The following season, she competed as a senior for the first time at the Czech Skate, where she finished third on the podium. After winning another medal at the Croatia Cup, she went on to take part in the 2015 US Championships. Following an impressive skate, the teen received the bronze medal.
The next year, she competed as a senior for the first time internationally at the 2015 International Classic. Though she didn’t manage to win a medal, her skate did earn her a fourth-place finish. That same season, Chen also took part in the 2015 Skate Canada, Cup of China, and Golden Spin of Zagreb events.
Since then, the skater has continued to earn medals at several competitions such as the 2017 US Championships, where her efforts won her gold.
Most recently for the 2017-18 season, Chen helped Team North America win the bronze medal at the Japan Open. In addition to that, she also competed at the 2017 Skate International and US International Figure Skating events.
