Karen and her family moved to Boston in 2005 to help plant REUNION Christian Church, where she led the Family Ministry and served as the bookkeeper. Previously, Karen served on staff as a Children’s Ministry Director at Community Christian Church in the Chicagoland area. Loving and encouraging families through the church or local community makes her heart beat fast. Her passions lie in caring for children from hard places as both a foster parent, and as co-founder of The Foster Box, a non-profit equipping foster families. Karen lives in the Boston metro area with her husband Mike and their three kids: Aiden, Miles & Owen and is grateful for the ever-growing number of children who call her mom through foster care.
