Karen began her home schooling journey in 1996, focusing on teaching her six children, the biggest joys and blessings of her life. Her oldest son received his Master’s in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech. Her second son is pursuing his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech. Her third son is a rising senior studying Philosophy at Toccoa Falls College. Her oldest daughter is a rising junior studying Chemistry with a minor in German at Liberty University. Her two youngest daughters are both students at Eastside Academic Studies (serving on the Student Council), nearing the end of their high school years. Karen earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Queensland (Australia), studied piano to the highest level under the Australian Music Examinations Board, and has completed two years of training in spiritual direction. She and her husband / best friend / constant supporter Paul recently celebrated 31 years of marriage. They serve together on the leadership team of the Liberty Vineyard Church in Lilburn, where she leads Bible studies, plays on the worship team, and enjoys helping with kids. Karen enjoys teaching all kinds of topics to every age and stage in a wide variety of settings, including churches, clubs, camps, conferences, seminaries, and schools. She lived in Australia from age 7 to 25, and her family lived as missionaries in Russia for almost 2 years before her children began their college studies. She is passionate about helping young people find God`s direction for their life and teaching them how to think with discernment in order to impact our culture for Christ. More than anything, she desires to glorify God with her life as she equips, encourages, and empowers others to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
