Kari is an author, speaker, and the founder of the SELF Project. Her work explores the often challenging dynamics of parents and children. Her latest book, Truth Has a Different Shape, is a memoir about growing up in the ’70s and ’80s as a caretaker-type in a family torn by divorce and the loss of a child and how that shaped my own parenting, and ultimately my caregiving for my parents in their twilight years. Her work has appeared in a variety of places such as Ms. Magazine, Healthline, and The Seattle Times Education Lab Ignite Storytelling event, as well as several anthologies and other books.
