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 church music ministry, teaching piano and preschool music on the side, before her call evolved into pastoral ministry.  Karen completed her M. Div at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2021. She has been appointed as a full-time licensed local pastor to St. Paul's UMC in Allison Park since 2013.  Her ministry passions are pastoral care, mental health, and worship.  Karen and her husband Craig have been married for 25 years, and are the proud parents of three young adult children: Bryan, Amanda, and Jonathan.  Karen and Craig will have an "empty nest" for the first time this Fall, but are sure that their two dogs will keep things lively!
