Karen worked in the corporate world as a legal secretary/assistant for many, many years; sold real estate; and has also been self-employed as an image consultant, and in sales of health care products.
Karen and Chuck have been married since 1986 and each have a daughter from previous marriages. Karen has 3 grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
Karen became interested in natural healing therapies in 1979 to assist her in bringing her health back to balance. Studying extensively about the various therapies guided her to personally experience many of these therapies which then turned her health around. From this she began to realize that in order to obtain good health Body, Mind and Spirit all have to be in balance. In l989 Karen began the study of astrology, which at first was taken on strictly as a therapy to understand herself and family. The more she learned about astrology, the more she realized the importance of what this tool can provide. What began as a hobby and therapy for herself completely changed her life.
In studying her own natal chart, she found the following answers:
what her life purpose was
what type of career she needed to be fulfilled
the type of natural therapies that were best for her
the ability to understand and accept other people.
After finally realizing that scattering herself in too many directions while trying to hang onto her security was not working and was affecting her health and happiness, Karen left the corporate world and in 1997 opened The Metaphysical Emporium, so that she could share her experiences with alternative healing modalities and knowledge of astrology with others so they too could begin their journey of personal and spiritual development.
