Karen P. Starkey

Director of Foundation Relations

Karen attended North Carolina State University, where she studied business administration and marketing. She went on to earn her master’s of business administration from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Since joining Pi Kappa Phi staff in 2023, she has worked to process Foundation gifts, manage stewardship efforts and coordinate scholarship and grant processes. In her free time, Karen enjoys reading, doing yoga, sewing, playing the piano and spending time with her husband, two daughters and dog, Elvis.  

Fun Fact: Karen is skilled in solving a Rubik’s Cube, and her family has gotten her numerous novelty design cubes just to mess them up and watch her solve them. 

Karen can help you with anything Foundation related.
