After spending the last 18 years of their lives in Pine Mountain, GA, Karen and her husband Derek moved to Milledgeville in 2015. They have three daughters, Maggie, Betsy, and Molly, all of whom have graduated college and are living and working in Atlanta and Forston, GA.
Karen has a passion for children and has been involved with preschool ministries over the past 25 years. Before moving to Milledgeville, she most recently served as Director of Noah's Ark Child Enrichment Center at FUMC Pine Mountain since 2000. Karen believes so strongly in church preschool ministry because it helps children grow confident and learn to socialize while also providing an avenue to welcome program families into a loving church environment.
Karen graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Interiors and Furnishing. She and Derek enjoy being active in the Milledgeville community and watching sunsets on Lake Sinclair.
