INSIGHTS FROM THIS JOURNEY

From 2003-2005, Karen served director of the Gifted Association of BC’s Vancouver Chapter, as well as coordinating four of that group’s International Conferences focused on the needs of gifted children.

In 2004 Karen co-founded Silbury Education and Resource Centre for Gifted and Creative Learners. As director and principal of this ground-breaking educational institution, Karen was able to integrate her business and marketing experience with her compassion, creativity and energy to develop a unique program for gifted and creative learners. Karen was aware that most children in that category didn’t fit into standard models of education. So, she designed a theme-based, interactive curriculum based on their needs as well as ran the school, which included overseeing operations as well as running special events and conferences.  Her progressive mind-set made cutting-edge science along with the traditional “wisdom of the sages”  accessible and meaningful to every student in the Silbury classrooms.  Karen used a combination of new education technology, intuition, and humor to successfully implement the Silbury philosophy from grades 1-9.
