St. Paul's U M Church
Associate Pastor


Karen grew up as a United Methodist Pastor's kid in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.  She earned a Bachelor of Music degree in piano and organ performance from Grove City College, and served several years in music ministry at a Lutheran Church, teaching piano and preschool music on the side, before her call evolved into pastoral ministry.  Karen completed half of the Course of Study for Local Pastors before transitioning to Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, where she anticipates completing her M. Div (finally!) in May, 2021.  She has served as Associate Pastor at St. Paul's UMC in Allison Park since 2013.  Her ministry passions are pastoral care and worship.  Karen and her husband Craig have been married for 23 years, and they have two children in college (CCAC and Case Western Reserve University) and one in high school (North Allegheny).
