Fertility Planit is the resource Karin couldn't find. It’s a double bottom line start-up that launched in January 2013 in Los Angeles. They produce an annual event featuring lleading experts and inspirational voices across fertility, family planning, health and wellness.

She is an experienced TV producer and journalist, producing content all over the world for clients such as the BBC, Discovery, PBS, MTV and Oxygen. Her award-winning films have screened at festivals including Sundance, Berlin, Telluride and BFI.

In 2010, after being told by specialists she would never conceive with her own eggs, Karin conceived naturally with a known donor. Her healthy baby boy was born in April 2011. She now wants to help make the path lighter for others.
