Karen Samuelson

Office Manager

Having grown up in Richland, there is still nowhere else I’d rather live.  I love the Columbia river, the desert and even the tumbleweeds!

I began college on a course to become a surgeon.  That changed due to a brain injury when I was hit by a drunk driver.  God spared my life and had another road for me.  I attended CBC and EWU, where I received my degree in psychology with extensive studies in communications.

After working in management and then being a stay at home mom, I began working in the RBC office in 2010; becoming office manager in 2016.  I am responsible for published communications, graphic design, scheduling, purchasing, contact with the public and church members, supervising the office assistant and volunteers and supporting the most wonderful pastoral staff imaginable.

I married my college sweetheart in 1981, and God blessed us with a beloved daughter and son-in-law.  A passion of ours has been rescuing special needs dogs.  My favorite thing is to be outdoors in God’s amazing creation and especially with some 4-legged friends with  wagging tails.
