Since 2018, Karen is the friendly face greeting visitors to the church office and the welcoming voice on the phone.  Karen has over 40 years of customer service, payroll and human resource experience in both business and churches.  Prior to joining Zion Lutheran Church, she worked for a family owned staffing business for 21 years in which 17 of those years were in management.  Taking a semi-early retirement to work part-time, she worked as the administrator for a smaller nearby church before joining Zion.

Karen and her husband, James have been involved in many of Zion’s groups throughout the past years.  They also enjoy spending time with their married son/daughter-in-law and daughter/son-in-law, six grandchildren and their extended family.  They also enjoy vacationing with their friends.
