Ladies, listen in! Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio talks about one of her recent blog entries written specifically for females with autism and Asperger's and the loved ones who support them.

Karen doesn't want listeners to get hung up on labels. So whether you consider yourself a gal with Asperger's or Autism, an Aspergirl, autistic, Aspie, autie or whatever term you find most applicable or personally appealing, be sure to tune in. This radio show episode is meant to be loving and inspirational and to let you know that you are not alone in navigating the road less traveled on the autism spectrum.

Karen is the Executive Director of Autism Empowerment, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. She is also an Aspie, a mom to two sons who have been diagnosed with autism and Asperger's respectively and she was recently honored in New York City in May with the 2012 GRASP (Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership) Distingued Spectrumite Medal.

Karen is a former touring professional bowler with the Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour, having been nominated for both the Robby Sportsmanship award as well as the Rookie of the Year Awards. She is also an online retail businesswoman with over 13 years experience in sales and marketing and an eBay PowerSeller with over 20,000 positive feedbacks.

She co-founded Autism Empowerment in June of 2011 with her husband John and shortly thereafter coined the four foundational pillars of the organization, Accept, Enrich, Inspire and Empower. 

She appreciates neurodiversity and believes in promoting Acceptance, Enrichment, Inspiration and Empowerment for all those within the Autism and Asperger communities.
