“Because we work with former foster youth who have overcome extraordinary challenges to succeed, our organization has always had great stories to tell. With Karen’s unique blend of coaching, training and shared insight, we now also have great storytelling! She has done extraordinary work coaching the young people we serve, our staff, and even Board members, to share their stories to move and inspire others.
