Mike Unternahrer

Mike and Karen, natives of Indiana, joined Students International in April 2012. Mike currently supervises Hospitality & Maintenance, Student Life Coordinators and has been instrumental in founding the new base in Santiago. Karen has served as Director for Centro Especial Genesis since coming to the DR. Genesis serves thirty students who experience varying degrees of cognitive delay and physical challenge. Interacting with staff, students, and their families gives Karen opportunity to share the love of Jesus and complements her lifelong passion to advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 31:8).
