Karen has a passion for writing health and healthcare-related articles. She is an international medical graduate who is based in Toronto, ON. She believes that lifelong learning is essential to a human being. Hence, reading is one of her favorite past times and writing is her way of sharing the knowledge to her readers. You can see more of her works at her blog, Filipina in Canada. When she's not writing, she works as a personal assistant to her toddler managing her day-to-day activities and making sure her boss accomplishes at least 80% of their goals each day. She will be happy to connect with other mom-negers (yes, we know, it's so creative to call a managerial position like that) through Twitter at @dokcas.
