Karen started working for Eden Rise in 2014 taking on the bookkeeping and some admin. While having done bookkeeping much of her working life, Karen has also long had a strong spiritual and environmental interest. Undertaking an environmental degree as a mature student, her university placement year brought Karen down to Devon’s Slapton Ley Field Studies Centre where she set up the community composting scheme in the village, and fell in love with Devon. Spiritual interests were later indulged by training in Creative Kinesiology which Karen loves to work with, either as personal support or giving balances to others. Walking in nature and spending time with friends is how Karen loves to spend free time.
