Karen Millsap, suddenly became a widow - before she was 30 years old - when her husband was tragically murdered while teaching his CrossFit class. After experiencing a domino effect of other losses, she became acutely aware of the overall lack of support in our society for grieving people. This realization ignited Karen's desire to turn her pain into purpose and pay it forward to help others.
Karen's work has been featured in SHRM Magazine, on Good Morning Washington, MSNBC, and many others! She's also a regular contributor to Arianna Huffington's THRIVE Global community. Karen is a TEDx keynote speaker who inspires audiences to embrace compassion and empathy to help alleviate other’s suffering by becoming advocates for their own adversaries.
Karen is the CEO (Chief Empathy Officer) of Egency, a firm that helps organizations create a human-centric culture with compassion and empathy. She's also the author of the upcoming book, Now What? and founder of Well Now Global Retreats.
