Karen Anderson
Executive Support & Marketing Coordinator

Karen Anderson, the Marketing and Communications Coordinator for the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce is an Arizona native, was born in Phoenix and raised in Flagstaff.  She graduated from Flagstaff High School in 1990, then on to Northern Arizona University to study Business Administration.  Karen moved to Fountain Hills 10 years ago, after raising her children in Scottsdale, and fell in love with the small-town atmosphere.  Karen has a strong background in finance and office management.  The most rewarding time spent professionally was as the office manager of a funeral home.  Although a difficult job at times, she felt that she was given the opportunity to help people in her community in one of their greatest times of need.

Karen became involved with the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce 4 years ago when she started attending the Elite Leads meeting for her boss, Larry Webster.  She instantly fell in love with our Chamber of Commerce and became more involved by becoming an Ambassador and attending or participating in as many events as she could.

Karen is married and together with her husband has four grown children.  She enjoys traveling, hiking, reading, crafts, and spending time with her husband at their home in Mormon Lake, Arizona where they met as children and grew up together.  They both love animals; having many in Northern Arizona from horses and chickens to cats and dogs, with the occasional orphaned calf to bottle feed and raise.

As the Communications and Marketing Coordinator, you will see Karen regularly through a weekly Chamber newsletter released on Mondays, Uniquely Fountain Hills Show which airs monthly on Facebook and YouTube, a bi-weekly podcast series, FountainCast, featuring our local businesses with audio available on every podcast platform and video available on YouTube and Facebook.  Thrive visits featuring our businesses April through October which are local "commercials" featuring our businesses, and on every social media platform just to name a few of our current initiatives.  Help us welcome Karen by stopping by our Chamber and Visitor's Center, have a cup of coffee and get to know your local Chamber of Commerce.
