Meet Scott



Scott has been married to his college sweetheart, Karen, for over 36 years. They have lived in Placer County and Roseville most of their lives, raised their family here, and started businesses here. Karen is an executive at one of the largest nonprofit children and family services organizations in the state (foster-adoption & blindness agency with offices throughout California).

The Alvord’s have seven wonderful adult children (the family photo above was taken many years ago). Some were family relatives they raised and adopted, and some were by birth. Regardless of how they entered the family, they are a close-knit family. Scott and Karen are extremely proud of their children, who are all contributing to society. Five of the children are now wonderful parents themselves. At this point, Scott and Karen have thirteen grandchildren.
