Introduction: I will leave your audience talking about the presentation for days after. My passion for Communication has allowed me to teach communication at the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and Washtenaw Community College. Passed Seminar I have developed: • Listening • Emotional intelligent • How to Have a Difficult Conversation • Group Communication • Health Communication • Infertility Speaking is my passion - I am committed to helping expand the comfort zones of the audience, by developing new techniques on interpersonal communication situations. As a Toastmaster, I have competed in numerous contests and trained by Darren LaCroix in his "Get Coached to Speak" class. These combined skills allowed me to gain experience to become a professional speaker. Set up a booking date and you will receive a 10 percent discount on my services. I understand the need for a positive environment, I use real-life examples and give techniques that an audience can resonate with and use immediately after the presentation. In the last year, I have added "author" to my resume I have completed my first children’s book called “My Cave City Adventure with Aunt Kate”. We have a podcast called Horse Bits under Buzzsprout- check it out. Please review for more information.

When I walked into my first class at the United Association Instructor training program at Washtenaw Community College, what I saw was 25 nervous plumbers, pipefitters and HVAC mechanics. At the start of class Karen had us quickly engaging with each other and talking about something called " Karen Fun ". With Karens skill and professionalism, she was able to get a room of nervous Union tradesmen a little more at ease and best of all teachable. I found the 20 hours of instruction; fun energetic and comprehensive. I am excited to use my new speaking skills in my next class. I might even join toastmasters Great Job Karen !!!

Karen provided me with valuable understanding into communicating better when working online. It is apparent that she is very knowledgeable on the topic of communications, and provided good insight into all of the subjects we discussed. She was a pleasure to work with.
