Karen obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication/Journalism from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. In 2008, Karen obtained her Florida Teacher’s Certificate for grades K-6. That same year, she took over as the Physical Education teacher at Bridges Montessori in Stuart, Florida. As a teacher, she was provided great professional development opportunities, including seminars and workshops in Peaceful Parenting and Conscious Discipline. This training was instrumental in preparing Karen for her job as Behavior Coach with Behavior Basics. Karen lives in Palm City, Florida with her husband and 11-year old daughter. She enjoys coaching her daughter’s softball teams and attending sporting events with her family. Karen grew up in a Military family and had the wonderful opportunity to travel all over the world and hopes to bring her daughter to other countries as she gets older.
