Associate Director


Karen came to development work 20 years ago from a background in music. She has found that both fields focus on relationships and that is what has made her development work so rewarding. She particularly enjoys the collaborative nature of the work with her colleagues at EMU as well as from other institutions. In addition to her “day job,” Karen directs the choir at Park View Mennonite Church and leads music there. She loves her family which now includes three grandchildren, reading and being in a book group, and always has several knitting projects going. The knitting and books go with her whenever she travels.
