First Lady Karen L. Baker is a Milwaukee native and was raised to have a firm foundation in the word of God thanks to her father and mother. She credits her parochial schooling with sparking her desire to dig deeper into the word of God.

Lady Karen continued her education at Howard University in Washington, D.C. There she majored in musical theater and played piccolo in the Showtime Marching Band. Howard opened the door for many opportunities including the blessing to study theater at Oxford University in England. Using her passion for music, the Lord led her to sing with the Howard University Chapel Choir and that allowed her to hear some of the most gifted and influential pastors from around the world.
After Lady Karen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, she began her teaching career. Although she was very busy in her career, she still made time to work as a professional actress, lighting technician, and stage manager. The Lord brought her back to Milwaukee to give back to her community and help prepare future generations. Lady Karen founded Character Builders Camp to develop youth morally and artistically. While teaching high school, she earned her Master of Arts in Teaching from Rockford University. As a proud wife and mother to six, Lady Karen finds joy in supporting her family and inspiring others.
