As the founder of Market Earth, Karen combined her desire to help improve the lives of others with the opportunity she felt existed to create a place people could shop for quality products, that could also make a difference. Over the years, volunteer efforts with several organizations showed her that most people want to be a part of a better world but not everyone knew how to start or where to go. Ready for a change herself, she left the only job she’d ever known and jumped off the corporate cliff embarking on the journey that is now Market Earth. Ask her and she’ll say she’s a work in progress, excited for what’s still to come and ever grateful for everyone supporting her along the way. When not working on Market Earth you might find her with her dog, Okan-if you do please give her directions because she’s probably lost.
