Hi! My name is Karen. I’m a wellness fanatic living in Neenah, Wisconsin. I have been happily married for almost 28 years to a man who never fails to tell me each day how much he loves me.
Together, we have raised three children (25, 24, and 23 years old), all of whom I am immensely proud. In 2015, we added Golden Retriever (Quinn) to our family.
I teach 6th and 7th grade high ability students ELA and Social Studies. I am incredibly fortunate to share my passion for writing with my students, and to work with a phenomenal team of teachers (who don’t mind being guinea pigs when I try new recipes).
Running, biking, hiking, boating, sailing, and skiing are my favorite ways of staying active. I’ve been running for over 30 years, and have completed 5 marathons. I am trying really hard to love yoga. I also enjoy reading, writing, and making (and photographing) vegan food!
4 years ago I began a blog to combine my passions for writing and health. I was featured in Gena Hamshaw’s (of The Full Helping) Green Recovery series a few years ago as well. You can read that here. And if you are really interested, you can read the long version of my story here.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and I love any positive forms of interaction! Check out my instagram and twitter as well.
