Karen calls herself a “grief consultant” speaking to women all over.  Her most important area of concentration when lecturing is that of “Focusing on total well-being” and to “use tragedy to change the world.”

Karen’s son was only 2 when her husband was killed and she has made sure her son does not forget his dad. The killer has yet to be caught so closure hasn’t come to Karen completely.


Ashlee’s husband was murdered by the spouse of a woman with whom he was having a secret affair.  Ashlee, mother to 5 young children, had to deal with the “reveal of the affair” in addition to murder trial. Put on the spot on the Dr. Phil show, she had to forgive the perpetrators as well as herself. Ashlee needed to STAND UP to her power so she shares her story and how she overcame this Defining Moment.



Both woman, along with Debby have tragedy in common and hearing their stories can help us learn how to forgive and how to move on in life.
