My name is Karen and I was born in the Canadian Prairies, and I lived in Canada until finishing medical school in Montreal. I became a  physician, specializing in OB-GYN. After marrying and starting a family, my medical career took me to California, where I reside today. I love California for the warm weather, but you can still have snow – if you’re willing to drive to it!

As a lifelong learner, I have many hobbies and passions. There are so many topics that stoke my creative fire, feed my soul and make my life full. Here’s the short list:

  • Podcasting
  • Blogging
  • Medicine
  • Scrapbooking
  • Genealogy
  • Art
  • History
  • Science
  • Business
  • Anthropology
  • Charitable work
  • Storytelling
  • Sustainability

I launched A Creative Approach Podcast to share stories of individuals who have used creativity to their advantage, at home, and in business, by working through challenges with a creative approach. Did I mention that I am a sucker for a good story? I love storytelling as an art and as a way to connect. I was a co-host on The Digiscrap Geek Podcast for a long time, and I have been a guest on many other podcasts. I contribute as a creative team member at Debbie Hodge’s Get It Scrapped, and I tell more stories on my personal blog – Karen’s Corner of the Web.

Get ready for some fun and plenty of inspiration as you listen to the podcast! I’m confident that each and every episode will tickle your brain and expand your creative possibilities.
