I enjoyed being mentored by Karen at the Genius Educator Certification Program in Bali! Immensely attentive to details and driven to support Genius Educators in their efforts worldwide, Karen's portfolio of monthly webinars and community-management speaks volumes of her dedication to developing mature youth, who then go on to thrive in the 21st Century landscape! Thank you, Karen!

Sally Cope

Karen is a great facilitator and mentor. She takes time to ensure you really understand and addresses any issues. Thank you Karen. Look forward to working with you more.

Lesli Grant

Karen is a key reason I am still here. Genius U’s wonderful complexity can challenge some of us. Karen’s clarity and continued mapping of key places, documents and how to navigate has found me jumping in and “inspired to find”. Lesli Grant

Questioning is the art of learning. Learning to ask important questions is the best evidence of understanding there is, far surpassing the temporary endorphins of a correct ‘answer.’
