About Karen Iverson

Thanks for visiting my ePortfolio.  I am an artist, writer, educator, and coach who loves to learn.  I have studied Photography, Printmaking, Drawing, Painting and Ceramics at the School of Visual Arts, William Paterson University, Bergen Community College and Montclair State University.  I have studied writing at the University of New Hampshire and book publishing with the Self Publishing School. I hold a masters degree from Columbia University Teachers College as well which has impressed upon me the importance of thinking outside the box and finding ones personal motivation. In addition, I am currently studying to receive a masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and I hope to offer assistance to individuals in finding healing.  

Recently, I published my first book: Winning the Breast Cancer Battle: Empowering Warriors and Guiding Loved Ones which sheds light on how to lessen the suffering patients, family members, and friends face during this tumultuous experience. Written in a journal style it also includes 7 tips sections with questions to ask doctors, ways family & friends can help, & imparts ideas such as relaxation, clutter clearing techniques, and art projects. It also provides a resource list for during and after treatment. Winning the Breast Cancer Battle was a #1 New Release on Amazon and has been in the top ten breast cancer books in the Amazon Kindle store.

My companion journal for the breast cancer patient is due to be released in Oct 2020 - please see Amazon for that release. Also, if you do choose to purchase my book I ask you to please leave a review after reading my book - this helps the book reach more people so that more can be assisted on their journey. 

I have recently added new artwork in the Drawing and Painting sections. I would love to discuss any pieces with you. Feel free to contact me at karen@winningthebreastcancerbattle.com.
