“I love giving the extra TLC to the nervous and scared fur babies, to help them feel as at ease as possible.”

When not working, Karyn is most likely found playing with her two energetic boys, Desmond and Lynden, and then enjoying some quiet time snuggled with her two feline fur babies, Crash and Foxy.
