“I cannot recall another time when I actually received thank you notes  from employees expressing appreciation for the wonderful workshop. Your message was very inspiring as noted in the participant  comments to you as well as the comments I and other members of  TCC's mgmt. have received.” 

- Larry Ketchum,

Tri-County Community Action Director of  Operations


Dr. Karen is an energetic and dynamic speaker. She strives to inspire and encourage with her interactive, action-oriented, and  down-to-earth presentations filled with personal and funny anecdotes.


Karen excels at equipping her listeners with simple and effective action steps. 

Invite Dr. Karen to speak to your event, conference, athletic or  women’s group, corporate gathering, or commencement  ceremony.  

Prayerfully consider how you will provide: 

• transportation to and from events, if needed 

• clean, comfortable, private, smoke/pet odor-free,  accommodations 

• volunteer assistance with a resource table in a visible,  accessible location and compensation.

• Compensation as pre-agreed either as a 1099 contracted  service or a free-will offering. Please determine with your church  board the means of providing prior to our contracting services.  

• You are free to video the presentation if you provide Dr. Karen with a useable copy. 

"Elders who handle their duties well should be considered worthy of double compensation, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, “A worker deserves his pay” (1 Timothy 5:17-18, ISV, also Luke 10:7b).  

“In the same way, the Lord has ordered that those who proclaim the gospel should make their living from the gospel” (1  Corinthians 9:14, ISV).  

“Now to someone who works, wages are not considered a gift but an obligation” (Romans 4:4, ISV).
