Like so many North Pulaski and Faulkner county residents, Karyn has deep ties to the Little Rock Air Force Base and our military community. After moving around until she was five years old, her family finally settled near LRAFB where her father retired as a C130 pilot instructor. Her mother was an educator for the blind and has also since retired.
Karyn is married to Mitch who also grew up in North Pulaski County and owns a commercial Lawn Care service. They have two daughters, Faith, a ninth grader at Sylvan Hills, and Katelyn, a recent UALR graduate starting her career this year as a Kindergarten teacher for the Jacksonville North Pulaski School District. Katelyn has been married for over two years to Tyler who works as a lineman for First Electric Coop.
Karyn and her family have attended Sylvan Hills First Baptist Church for 11 years where she volunteers as the media coordinator and serves as chairman of the Stewardship Team and chairman of the Outreach Committee.
She has been an Agency Director for The Everett Agencies of Liberty National Life for four years after being a district manager in the retail industry for 25 years.
Karyn is known as a community leader and is active in several organizations. She is a member of the Sherwood Rotary Club and the Sherwood Chamber where she currently serves as an Ambassador and has previously been on the Chamber Board and the Executive Committee and served on several economic development committees.
Her community service also includes membership in the Gravel Ridge Improvement Team, an associate member of the North Pulaski Community Park, and active participation in community watch groups in North Pulaski County as well as working closely with local law enforcement as a member of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Advisory Committee. And she has demonstrated her ongoing commitment to economic development and strong public education for children in her community by working on campaigns to help build a new High School for Sylvan Hills and make major road improvements for the North Pulaski/Sherwood area.
