Karin Andrews


Karin Andrews has witnessed the life changing opportunities available to students in our area via the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School from a parent’s perspective.  Her daughter Caroline Andrews is a 2020 graduate of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School and is now majoring in Human Biology at George Mason University.

The Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School taught Caroline to effectively manage her life and schoolwork, which has been so crucial as a STEM Major.  The friendships she made with students from other counties, who also attended CBGS, are some of the most important relationships in her life, to date.   The educational opportunities provided by the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School are unrivaled and exceptional.  A big believer in our youth and in giving back, Karin is looking forward to serving and supporting the vital mission and work of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School Education Foundation so that future students will have the same benefits and opportunities . 

Karin resides in Essex County, on a farm above Tappahannock with her husband William Forrest Andrews, their dog “Blue”, cats (Moonlight and Bob) and a trio of laying hens. She spends time in the summer at their family home in Northumberland County (as time permits).  Karin also serves on the Board of the Essex County Museum and is a member of The Tappahannock Rotary Club, Virginia Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, Essex County Conservation Alliance and Tappahannock Artists Guild.  In recent years, Karin has provided behind the scenes support to numerous worthwhile causes and organizations in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, including the CBGS Education Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Gala.   

An accomplished architectural illustrator, fine artist and writer, Karin has authored over 55 articles (on a variety of subjects) which have been published in regional and national magazines or newspapers.  She is a connector and a notorious networker, one of many skills which she utilizes in her career representing Sellers and Purchasers of Historic, Waterfront and Equestrian Properties in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia and Beyond.
