Karen is a new arrival to the South Shore, having moved here from Ireland in May 2015. She lives in Scituate with her partner Mike and she teaches yoga in Scituate and Norwell (check out www.yogasouthshore.com).
She has always been an animal lover and has kept horses, dogs, cats, a rabbit and a guinea pig. She was one of those kids who always preferred the company of animals and even today believes that nothing compared to the unconditional love of a dog. Ever since she moved to the US she has been pining for her main man, a handsome Black Lab / Boxer cross called Harry, who loves to climb trees and join her on her yoga mat, but who sadly had to stay at home in Ireland.
In the absence of her number one hound, she is so happy to have some daily fluff back in her life. She likes to run, so don’t be surprised if your dog gets a little extra exercise! She has a degree in Irish and Translation, and since arriving in MA she has begun teaching Irish in the Irish Cultural Center in Canton, and the Irish International Immigrant Center.
