At Flag a "Field Class VIII" had to prove themselves as a Flag interned Class VIII, so Karen started from the bottom up doing every Internship all over again. After passing her Class IX internship, she went straight on to Class X, XII and XII and graduated the courses and internships. Her certificates earned on board the Apollo were personally signed by LRH.
“I will tell you that Flag internships are grueling. It was a 16 hour-a-day schedule, and passes were only given after consistent VWD at minimum 40 hours in the chair. LRH said "there are no absolutes in this universe,” but a Flag auditor is an ABSOLUTE.”
Her TRs were passed by LRH. As an auditor, her folders went to LRH almost daily although David Mayo, LRH’s auditor, (later to be vilified and kicked out of the CoS by David Miscavige) was her direct C/S. The auditing day began at 8:30 AM in the Flag Internship. After roll call by the Intern Sup, Jeff Walker, they all studied the latest LRH C/Ses done the night before.
As the Old Man rolled out C/S after C/S, the ink barely dry, the world’s top technical hierarchy learned how LRH C/Sed every case. As Karen says, “Those were the days! I can state that my Apollo days were THE happiest, the most adventurous, the most challenging and exhilarating days of my life.”
Today, Karen is proud to be uncontaminated with David Miscavige’s Out-Tech perversions ala, the "Golden Age of Tech" that have even changed the definition of a floating needle. In one of the most suppressive actions ever known, Miscavige cancelled the certificates of all auditors personally trained by L. Ron Hubbard — Class XIIs, Class VIIIs, and Class VIs, labeling their method of training as “THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND.” Then he attempted to retrain them his way.
David Miscavige called L. Ron Hubbard “blind.”
In September 1975 the Sea Org landed in Daytona, Florida and moved into a hotel while a permanent base was being located.
From 1975 to 1979 Karen audited the Ls Rundowns morning, noon and night. She also traveled all over the world with the famous Flag World Tours speaking to people about the Ls and recounting her stories and experiences with LRH.
Karen traveled to a new city every month where she conducted “flub-catch” reviews of all tough, bogged or "failed” cases — getting each one on the rails.
Karen is a kind but tough Sea Org veteran of some 30 Sea Org Missions, most of which were assigned Affluence.
In 1978 Karen married Heber Jentzsch in the FSO chapel. Heber was sent out to work in Los Angeles so in 1979, Karen traded posts with Ray Mithoff and became Senior C/S Celebrity Center LA which subsequently became CC INT.
In 1980 Karen went for NOTS training as both auditor and C/S and trained up to Class XII C/S. At the peak, she had some 19 Ls auditors. 30 years later only nine Ls auditors exist. She has audited, C/Sed and Solo’ed thousands of hours of NOTS.
From 1982 to 1987 she worked at OSA — the new name for the old Guardian's Office.
Forced to divorce Heber, President of the Church, after 6 months of hell at the Int Base courtesy of David Miscavige, Karen was then sent to audit NOTS at AOLA. Due to the direct suppression from David Miscavige, she routed out of the Sea Org in 1990.
In 2010, Karen declared her independence from David Miscavige and his corrupt organization and is now delivering auditing and C/Sing in California.
