Over her career, Karen has worked in areas including inventory control, sales support, database management, and as the office manager at a legal support firm for more than a decade.
Karen’s interest in nutrition was piqued after she began following various online docuseries’ that talked about functional medicine, natural solutions to autoimmunity, and the restorative power of food for overall health. As her understanding grew about just how critical nutrition is to whole body wellness, so did her passion to pursue a career as a holistic nutrition professional. Since graduating from both NTI programs, obtaining certifications as a Master Nutrition Therapist & Natural Food Chef, she has begun to take clients in her own nutrition practice at “Hardy Holistic Nutrition” (hardyholisticnutrition.com). Karen is grateful for the opportunity to join her administrative experience with her love for holistic nutrition by working at NTI, and to give back to the community and the school that changed the course of her life.
In her free time, Karen enjoys commuting around town on her 125cc Genuine Scooter, getting together with friends, playing pool, finding healthy restaurant options, and attending outdoor music events in Denver’s parks.
