Karen always knew me as the positive person, smiling, bubbly, always positive. But sometimes we face hard times in our lives and when I was going through a really difficult time in my life I didn’t bounce back like I normally do.

Karen taught me that it’s okay to be upset, to feel the emotions and know that it was ok to feel this way. Positive feedback, validation of my emotions and support was a major reason I was able to move forward. She gave me the confidence to believe that I was going to be ok. Karen has helped me get to the place I am now. When you have people like Karen in your lives you know you will be alright.
