Karen Austin


A local to the Southern Highlands, I have been serving on the staff team at Capernwray as the Accounts Manager since January 2014. Prior to this, I worked as an accountant, a health and fitness coordinator and an outdoor education instructor. It wasn't until I was in my mid 20s that I came to know Christ and as a result it is a joy to me to see many students younger than this already devoting time to learn and grow in Him here. My husband is a pastor of one of the local churches, as well as a physiotherapist and we have three gorgeous daughters, two of which are in high school with the youngest in primary school. I spend 2 days a week in the office at Capernwray, as every other minute I have is spent running our Physio practise, juggling church commitments and driving my very sporty girls to their various games. I am passionate about playing sports myself, and have a love for animals great and small. As a result you may often find me down on the Cecil Hoskins track with a furry friend or two!
