Meeting life’s challenges head-on, Karen is a Breast Cancer Survivor, divorcee, and lost a child to pediatric cancer; through it all, she found the strength to carry on and is the proud mother of two of her own children , 2 foster children and grandmother. Karen’s dream of moving to New York City to become a fashion designer came true when she attended F.I.T., The Fashion Institute of Technology. 

After graduating from F.I.T. Karen worked for several design houses on Seventh Avenue. The design house of Giorgio Armani hired Karen for quality control and alterations. This position would prove to have a profound effect on Karen’s life as a designer. She would eventually become a freelance designer and a specialist in alterations. Services only by Referral.

Seeking more  knowledge Karen continue to educate herself  after learning that her  daughter learned differently.   Returning  back to college to become a educator. The idea was to help her daughter who learn differently never forgetting  to give back and teach the younger generation to dream.
