Co-leader Kari smiling for the camera
Tell us about your family:
I have been married to my husband for 4.5 years. We have a 2.5 year old daughter and a 7 month old daughter.


How long have you been a co-leader of HMN?
I was originally a member of the St. Cloud chapter, but recently moved closer to the cities and became a co-leader for the Twin Cities chapter.


What brought you to HMN?
Since having children I have become very passionate about living a more holistic lifestyle. It can feel isolating at times not having a support system that understands questioning and not choosing to do everything the "mainstream" way. I'm grateful to have found the HMN community where we can all nonjudgmentally support each other in the quest for what is best for ourselves and our family.


My holistic passions are...
Nutrition, parenting, birth, breastfeeding, gut health, brain health, stress, homeopathy, and I'm probably missing a million more!


I'm a chapter co-leader because...
I'm grateful for what this community has done for me and the relationships I have built, so I want to be able to share that with other moms.
Get to know Kari:
Because of all the restrictions in hospitals this last year, it led us to our dream of having a home birth for our second baby in July. Turns out it was THE BEST THING EVER and I won't be birthing any other way! So I am super passionate about chatting birth and specifically home birth
