Karin was born and raised in Sudbury, Massachusetts until she was 13 yrs old when her parents moved the family to Southern California. She has always felt the presence of the Lord but did not really hear about the gospel until 1985 when she attended, a then little church, Calvary Chapel Vista with Senior Pastor Brian Broderson. However, she still had not truly accepted Christ into her life and she moved to Los Angeles and then San Diego to see what life had for her.

 In 1991 a co-worker invited her to Horizon Christian Fellowship and that night she joyfully accepted the Lord into her heart and into her life. In 1993 she moved to Minnesota and was there for 4 1/2 years until 1998 when she came back to Southern California, and specifically, to the Temecula Valley. It was then that she met a woman in a doctors office who told her about CCBF and Karin and her family have been attending the Barn ever since. After several years of volunteering in the church office, Karin was graciously offered the opportunity to come on staff in 2013 and serve along side the saints at CCBF. Karin is the blessed mother of two amazing and beautiful daughters, Alexandra  and Chloe, which she had the incredible privilege of homeschooling throughout their school years. Both of her daughters love the Lord and are currently attending Christian Universities in Virginia and Minnesota.
