My dear friend Karen has been with me through the toughest years of my life. She is a devoted friend, trusted manager at my studio, compassionate ear, and best of all–gives fantastic hugs. Karen is an angel in my life. With her empathetic way of living, she held space for me when I was not the best version of me. She didn’t try to fix my situation but stood at my side with an open mind and a great hug. She will always be a trusted friend.
