Her love for speaking continued into high school when she placed third in a state public speaking competition for VOCA. Her dad proudly displays the plaque on his wall to this very day. She never saw her passion developing into what she can only describe today as an amazing blessing.  
    Karen has worked in the medical field for 25 plus years and continues to do what she does best, be a support system for others and provide comfort to them.
    She has combined her love and passion to create books of entertainment while touching on real life situations. Karen's first title, Grey Family Preys was published in June 2013, via Amazon Kindle as well as paperback, and touches on child  molestation.  She later signed with World Haven Agenda for a short period before gracefully departing with the publishing group.
