        My Favorite Quotes From Karen:

        “All of us can just find a way to be able to do what we love, but also have plenty of things that fill our cup in our lives at the same time… I do believe you can do both.”

        “What is worth sacrificing for and what is not?… You deserve to take the time to observe and sit with that figure out what you need to be more fulfilled in your life beyond expecting fuflliment to just come from your job.”
