Graduating Undergrad with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, Karen initially opted for the Corporate America life. Eventually working herself up to a six figure , vice president position of an insurance company, but deep down she knew this was not what she wanted to do. Having many heart to hearts with her spouse and calling on her faith for her ugh needed answers, Karen couldn’t help feeling like something big was on the way. Seeing the problem within her own community and the economy, she also knew she wanted to help change the lives of others. “Hearing God speak”, she eventually discovered in a bigger way the gifts she was given.

Eventually closing those doors , she knew this particular journey was not over. After visiting friends in Atlanta, she was contacted by a few clients who previously had work done by her; they BEgan to request more of it. As business picked up, Atlanta inspired what was almost lost and this vision was once more a reality. After stumbling onto an unlisted property, she contacted the seller and the new showroom was now her new home.

Knowing she can bring her own style to any where she touches, Karen is the down to earth designer who can design anything from trailers to mansions.

Allowing them to see we can have what we want from modern to contemporary , from french to traditional, it can all BE yours with her on your team.

She knew she had a story that would impact people and change peoples view points BEfore assuming they know things. She decided to write a book, targeted to release in mid 2012. She continues to touch the lives of everyone she comes into contact with and sharing her wisdom.”Nothing is impossible except the obvious, never BE afraid to BE you” she states. “Claim what you want, speak it into existence and don’t allow fear to prevent you from BEing who you are”, she adds.
Knowing her gifts are not hers but given to her to share with everyone else she continues to make herself better to inspire others. With the release of her book she hopes to transform lives, inspire people and motivate people. With her interior design she wants to let people know you can have what you want despite you current situation.
