BIOGRAPHY: Karen earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and her Master of Business Administration degree both from the University of Florida. She worked as a research chemist, a teacher, and a business manager for a large medical practice before deciding she needed a more creative outlet. Her love for organization and the unique challenges that individuals face in their everyday lives, trying to stay on top of so many responsibilities, enticed her to start her own organizing business. She is very involved with Le Bonheur Club, serving as President in the past, and is the current President of National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals Memphis Chapter.
