With over 40 years’ experience in the administrative stewardship of various Worcester enterprises, Karen is a passionate champion and spokesperson. As a co-founder of Wreaths Across America, Karen tenaciously works on ways the organization can best remember the fallen; honor those who serve; and teach our children that our freedoms are purchased at a great cost. Playing Small Moment When Karen’s second child was born two months premature, she blamed herself. It put things in perspective for her, and she knew if she could survive that, she could survive anything. The Wake Up Call Karen struggles with self-doubt and realizes many people just want to be loved and needed. She feels blessed to have understood from a young age, she didn’t need to be perfect, and she could only do the best that she could do. Style of Leadership Karen is respectful of the fact that we all have different skill sets and she wouldn’t ever set someone up to fail. She enjoys making other people feel successful.

Wow! This is amazing podcast to listen to! I have listened to all the episodes with all these amazing women and it has inspired and motivated me to go for it and to not let anything hold me back. Jodi is an amazing host. She makes the show personal and makes you feel like you are sitting right there with them. I have personally started to implement some of what I learned from listening into my own life and have been achieving positive things since! Can't wait for the next episode!! Love it!

Witness a new standard being set
Extremely polished, well versed, very nicely put together.... Both the show and Ms. Jodi that is.
When you are in flow there is no separation between business and life. There is no difference between significant other and significantly (the) other.
This sort of universal cohesiveness is established right from the get go. Without a doubt Jodi has pounded on her craft so that she is able to speak and provide value effortlessly. And I am not talking about the podcast. I am talking about the amount of work she has invested in herself to get her to where she is today (so that she can be here with you and share here and now with you.)
I know that women are the primary focus of the show. Initially, I kind of took offense to that because it feels like Jodi is speaking to me. I, as a male, care to be a part of the conversation. Then it dawned on me, I am a part of the conversation because we get there together: in harmony, in partnership, in relationship, and in faith. Jodi believes in us.

So Inspiring!! A must listen!
I love listening to Jodi's interviews. She has a fresh perspective on being a leader and her acceptance of men as a part of this scenario is quite unique. She's a brilliant interviewer! And her down to earth lighthearted connection totally shines through in her voice. Sharing this one with friends!
