Karen Plowman

Karen was born in the suburbs of Pittsburgh and still lives here. She serves as the current secretary of Port View UMC. She and her late husband, Terry, have 4 children; Terry Jr., Rick, Angela and Stacy. She also has three grandchildren and one on the way. On occasional weekends, she runs what her children refer to as “Grandma Camp,” while watching her grandkids and the 5 family grand-dogs.

Always ready to help those around her, Karen’s background in accounting, marketing and the desire to make people smile are the fundamental tools that she uses on a day to day basis. Whether it is making the weekly worship guides, monthly newsletter, or running the office, Karen’s empathetic and dependable attitude are what helps keep the church family connected and up to date.
