Hi I'm Karen

I graduated with a BS from BYU and an MS from Stanford in electrical engineering. I have five children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love teaching science and working with kids. I also enjoy the fine arts. I dance with a group for school assemblies, organize a ballroom dance class for youth, teach aerobics, perform in plays and musicals, and teach my kids piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that this church contains the gospel of Jesus Christ in the purest form: loving others, centering on family and other eternal relationships, prophets, revelation, and personal prayer. I testify that by acting on these simple truths, a person may draw closer to God while finding happiness and fulfillment in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I work as the leader administering to the specific needs of sisters in my congregation. I visit with sisters and try to help them both spiritually and temporally. I can do this for over one hundred sisters through the organization of the church in a program called visiting teaching where every woman has two other sisters stop by each month to give a spiritual message and find out if there is a need in the family. If something arises, I work to bring resources or comfort to the sister and her family. I also oversee monthly evening activities for the women as well as weekly exercise programs for those that are interested.
