About Karina
Most of my work experience has fallen under the umbrella of content or event production, which came as freelance work for my own company Shine A Light Productions. I shot a ton of live music projects and then segued into more lecture-focused content when I started working with Wanderlust, producing their speaking platform in 2010. When I stepped out of the office to have two kids, I founded a side project called Chop Wood Carry Baby, which grew out of my experiences discovering the healing powers of essential oils. I've continued to both teach about plant-based remedies as well as sell essential oil blends on the side, while stepping back into programming work with Wanderlust.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

A small bit of humor has helped me greatly in managing my own trials and tribulations through the "two under two" years - and to offer a glimmer of self-deprecating hilarity in situations that only fellow parents would understand has helped me (and others) realize that we all have been there before, and this too shall pass.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Connecting with other like-minded working mothers is a support web that I sorely missed when I stepped out of the workforce to have kids. Rejoining the community of the workplace can only be better by also knowing the struggles and triumphs of other moms balancing the same priorities.
