Karen Head, PhD

Executive Director

As an Army Brat, I grew up all over the world, but am in fact an Atlanta native--born just across the interstate from GT at Crawford Long Hospital. I have a PhD in English, specializing in Rhetoric & Composition, Contemporary Poetry and Creative Writing. In “previous lives” I’ve been on the road with a band, owned a catering company, and worked as the executive assistant to a CEO in the corporate world. I have a passion for both hot dogs and Baroque music, so I think a harpsichord concert in the Varsity would be amazing. And, yeah, I'm the Poet Laureate of Waffle House.
