Karen’s roots run deep in Richmond but as the daughter of an Air Force Officer, she grew up in several places, ultimately landing back in Richmond 20 years ago. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Virginia Tech and has her Masters in Urban Planning from Hunter College-NYC. Her career has included working for ministries such as CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) and non-profits such as Better Housing Coalition where she served as Director of Business Development. Karen has also taught as an Adjunct Professor at VCU’s school of Urban Planning. She has enjoyed working on various Boards and Committees serving the Richmond Community. Karen is active in a number of civic and charitable groups. Karen and her husband, Judge Richard Campbell, are the parents of three young daughters who attend Veritas Classical Christian School. The Campbells are active members at West End Presbyterian Church. Prayer and discipleship have been at the core of Karen’s life experience and she is confident that will be the case at the Study Center. Karen looks forward with much joy to serving as Director of Development!
