Hi! I’m Karen. New mom, marketer, event planner and former chef! Welcome to my website where I will try to entertain you and occasionally bore you with my obsessive passion for entertaining.
I grew up in Cobourg Ontario, about an hour east of Toronto. With a passion for culinary arts I started on my path as a chef. Many years later, too many late nights and thousands of hours in the kitchen, I decided that cooking was not my only passion. After narrowing down a very long list, I went back to school for marketing and moved to the city.
I started out on my own in 2010 opening a communications company. In my first 3 years I was lucky enough to work with some great companies and charities including Mars Canada, Microsoft, George Brown College and Ovarian Cancer Canada.
In early 2013 during a visit to Florida, I met my now husband Rian. Within a few months we had moved in together, adopted Maple (our spoiled greyhound) and got engaged. On June 14th, 2014 we married on a lavender farm just outside of Cobourg surrounded by the most amazing people in the world.
So, here I am now down South. What a big change but also an exciting new chapter!
More than anything I love to entertain and since I haven’t been able to settle on one passion in my life, why not combine them all.
