Karen Klassen - Chair (Joined in 2018)
I am an Assistant Professor at Salt Lake Community College where I teach a variety of Computer Science courses. My husband and I have three grown daughters and two wonderful grandchildren. We enjoy camping and hiking during the summer months, during the winter we tend to hibernate and enjoy time with friends. I also play golf as much as possible when the weather cooperates, and go to see my grand-kids as much as I can.
I grew up in a small town in West Texas, as an only child. I went to Dallas to pursue my Bachelor Degree in Computer Information Systems. While at college I started attending church and after a year or so, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. God changed my life in many ways. He has been faithful over the years, even though I have strayed away at times. I know without a doubt that my Savior lives, he intercedes for me, he loves me and watches over me daily. I am truly blessed to be alive and placed here at this time.
I once benefited from a local Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC), I relinquished my parental rights as a parent in December of 1987 and ever since have wanted to be involved in a PRC. I never found the time to actually engage in a local PRC, due to being a stay at home mom for many years. Now that I am in a new season of life, I want to invest in the lives of others, especially at a PRC. Over the years, I have talked with many young people about my choice and have encouraged them in their choices as well.
Beth Kopp - Vice-Chair & Secretary (Joined in 2016)
After graduating from college in South Carolina, my husband and I moved to Tennessee to be on staff at a church. Jon served as an assistant pastor, and I also was actively involved in the ministry. While living in Tennessee, I also became involved in a local pregnancy center by being a church ambassador, helping with post-abortive group counseling and eventually serving as a member of the center's board.
In 2012, we moved our family across the country to Salt Lake City to be part of a team that started Gospel Grace Church. Much of my time is spent teaching children and mentoring young adults and moms.
I have managed a web-store and worked in High School Special Education. Currently I am a stay at home mom to 3 children and a foster mom to children who need a temporary home.
Being involved in pro-life organizations has always been a part of my life. I remember participating in Walk for Life events as an early elementary school child. However, it became a passion of mine when I was pregnant with my first child. I walked into a pregnancy center to get information for my church and met a group of passionate people who greatly impacted my life! These pro-life friends taught me to re-think abortion as more than a political issue. For me, it became about moms, dads, babies, grandparents, society, and those suffering in the silence of being post-abortive. My personal desire is to be part of the solution by being a foster-adoptive mom and by serving on the Board of the PRC where men and women are presented with options for an unexpected pregnancy! It is a great privilege to be part of an organization that promotes life as a gift from God!

I am a board-certified Family Medicine physician who graduated with a B.A. from the University of Utah, received my medical degree (with a Honors in Bioethics) from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, and completed my residency at St. Anthony North Family Medicine Residency in Westminster, Colorado.

I was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), and I am grateful for the faith the Holy Spirit inspired and nurtured in me. I believe Jesus is Lord, Redeemer, Mighty Counselor and the Divine Physician, and it is my duty and joy to honor, trust and obey Him as I seek to use all He has gifted me to serve Him and my neighbor.
I am delighted to serve on the Pregnancy Resource Center Board of Directors, hoping to enhance the center’s ability to deliver the best possible care, while also “speaking the truth in love” to help clients make the healthiest decisions. As science proves, life begins at conception, and I believe every life is precious. “ I want to advocate for those who have no voice, to empower women and men to choose life, to provide support or resources for our clients, and to help relieve suffering, pain, confusion, and other ailments.
