Karen is a highly sought after keynote speaker and a Parents’ Choice Award-Winning storyteller.

Karen thoroughly enjoys traveling the world to inspire with her uplifting messages in churches, conferences, universities, private events, or any number of other types of engagements, and is always happy to tailor a speech or storytelling performance to fit your organization’s specific needs. So whether you are looking for inspirational stories or want your audience to hear about Karen’s diverse and gripping life experiences – sometimes mixed with magical adventures through the deserts of Persia or the jungles of the Amazon –  there are always many opportunities to delight and entertain.

A cornerstone of Karen’s principles and advocacies is her belief in the empowerment of women, children, and the power of community.  Many of Karen’s speaking engagements occur at – or at the center of – women’s conferences and seminars, in what Karen likes to call “Village Events” programs. These gripping and entertaining on-stage performances provide excellent out-of-the-box experiences for attendees and are designed to be a fun and uplifting way to educate and bond women of all backgrounds and ages.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
