Karen Swart, sales associate for Dun & Bradstreet and Marion Merrell Dow for 10 years and mother of two girls.
Karen grew up in a large farm family of 7 children in Western KS. Ten people and one bathroom! Believe it or not, they always arrived in one car and on time, so being organized was a way of life! She attended Kansas State University where she earned her B.S. in Business Marketing. Later she went on to earn her Masters of Business at Rockhurst University. She worked in sales for many years before deciding to stay home to raise her girls. She then worked part time as a Group Exercise Instructor and continues to enjoy teaching a few classes each week. Moving from Kansas City to Tennessee to Ohio and back to Kansas City, she was pleased to be back to her home state. Having an interest in the organizing field she came on board with Organizing-Etc as a project manager and also president.
She loves to exercise, scrapbook, and see any musical that is in town! It brings her great joy is to see an organizing project come to completion, and especially loves the idea of helping others realize a life of simplification and calm.
