Living abroad for nearly a decade, Karen has honed the perfect voice for a diverse audience, writing on culture and faith from an expat perspective, and crafting copy with soul (and a bit of snark).

A freelance writer and editor, wife to a missional woodworking artist, and the introverted mother of three extroverted children, Karen is a columnist for VOX Magazine (Ireland). She's also the submissions and graphics editor at VelvetAshes.com, and her essays and reporting have been featured at Religion News Service, Influence Magazine, and Relevant Magazine.
