Karyn has extensive experience coaching and training youth and adults in a wide variety of subjects including mindfulness, which she has facilitated in school and corporate settings. Prior to joining Minds, Karyn spent 22 years in leadership roles at Freddie Mac where she guided large teams of partners, staff, and consultants; effectively oversaw complex projects; and fostered a positive, collaborative environment. In addition, she has served on numerous Boards of Directors, Advisory Councils, and Task Forces, and has always been an avid volunteer (most frequently leading activities with and in support of youth). Karyn began practicing mindfulness and yoga with her own children when they were young and recently completed Mindful Schools’ intensive, yearlong teacher training program. She holds a Master of Science degree from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University.
