Karen Markham

Education Manager

Karen Markham joined the West Side staff in August 2016 as Education Manager. She coordinates logistics and executes plans for public discipleship, and oversees membership on the West Side.

“I'll guide you through the membership process or be the point person for West Side classes,” she says.

Karen earned her B.A. in Theatre, specializing in theatre management, at Vanderbilt, and has worked in hospitality and most recently as the operations manager at a tech company. When she first moved to the city, she worked at The Gin Mill — right around the corner from W83 — where she met her husband, Michael. “Great story of God’s will at work,” she says. “And the rest is history.” Karen and Michael live right at the top of Central Park with their three children, Claire, Henry and John.
