Kari, The Breathing Room's general manager, is a native Cincinnatian (Terrace Park to be exact). After graduating from Miami University with a bachelor's degree in Interpersonal⁄Relational Communication and a minor in Business Management, Kari aspired to do something where she could apply both sides of her strengths: effective communication and organized leadership. Kari said, "I love people- talking, teaching, and helping if I can. As much as I would like to say I found The Breathing Room on my own, in reality, the studio found me. I feel so fortunate to surround myself with wonderful people and healthy energy every day."
As both a guide and a listener, Kari has been successful in applying her natural abilities to promote, encourage and communicate everything The Breathing Room offers. Most days, you will find Kari at the desk helping with the day-to-day activities, but throughout the day, she is also working on marketing, planning events, teaching classes, creating class choreographies, and working with teachers to guarantee outstanding instruction.
When Kari is not at work, she loves spending time with her husband, Eric, daughter Mabel and their pup, Silas. She loves to surround herself with other people and feels incredibly blessed to call the whole Breathing Room staff some of her favorite people on Earth.
