In 1998, Karen and her former husband set out on a life-altering six-month ocean odyssey that resulted in a transformation of their lives. They re-invented their lives and learned how to live their dreams.

Not only does Karen bring to life her time on a 46-foot sailboat traveling from Fiji to Singapore and the changes this experience inspired in her, but she shares her personal journey through grief and loss beginning with the death of her brother, just four months after returning from overseas.

Her compelling message is “Sailing into our dreams isn’t all about calm seas and sunny skies, but it is about saying YES to life, no matter what the weather.”

With extensive experience facilitating workshops on Living a Purposeful Life, Karen tailors her presentation to fit the needs of each individual organization. Her audiences leave feeling inspired and empowered to create a meaningful and fulfilling life of their own dreams.
