Striving to live a life of perfection is paralyzing, restrictive, and can lead to depression when it’s not achieved.

After living decades of her life trying to please others, Karen herself is a “recovering perfectionist,” and has learned how to embrace her imperfections, ignore outside expectations, and actually pursue failure - and as a result, is living a life of joy and adventure. In her work, she is driven and passionate about helping women change the way they see and think about themselves.


In her talk, she will share her personal journey, discuss misconceptions of perfectionism, and share three ways you can change your own mindset and start living life on your own terms and embrace - and love! - a life of imperfection.
