Karen Carson (Previous “Lizzie” Winner)

“Thank you for a wonderful conference. This year I have pushed myself to do a better job of recognizing excellence in my life — noticing all of the blessings I am exposed to each day.

The “push” for me has been to acknowledge the excellence… I don’t want to let today’s excellence go unacknowledged. Thank you for your work, your passion, and your determination to uplift and mentor women. I know that I have been re-energized and refreshed today and am sure that every woman here can say the same.” ~Karen Carson, June 2018
