Karena Kilcoyne is an author and lifestyle expert. On her website, www.karenakilcoyne.com she shares musings from her smart, sexy, spiritual exploration of life and offers a deep dive into self-betterment techniques and innovative wellness trends.

Growing up, Karena dreamed of being a prolific writer. Instead, she graduated from Case Western Reserve School of Law. For years, she worked as a criminal defense attorney, focusing on white-collar crimes. She also worked as assistant general counsel for a $6 billion publicly traded company.

Karena is currently working on her first book. It is an honest, inspirational account of the turbulent childhood that haunted her for decades even through her professional success as a white-collar criminal defense attorney. The panic and anxiety that shattered her seemingly perfect adult life moved her to embark on a painful, but ultimately cathartic journey, that will surely resonate with others. In the book, she recounts with raw vulnerability how at twelve years old she cared for her mentally ill mother and three siblings after her father left for prison. From a tender, spiritual connection to her golden retriever Finn, she found a path towards healing and peace.
