Karen is the National Director of InterVarsity's Women in the Academy and Professions, and lives in Marietta, Georgia. Except for some years taken off to raise her three sons, she has spent her adult life in and around InterVarsity — originally as a student and campus staff member in Michigan and currently in Atlanta. An entrepreneur at heart, she and some student leaders started the grad fellowship at Michigan State and the MBA fellowship at Georgia Tech. She loves to use her gifts of hospitality and teaching to create a welcoming place for people to connect with God and with each other. She is passionate about seeing women flourish in the places God has called them. She loves dark chocolate, good coffee, and British television.
