Karen Hovelkamp

Karen’s passion is working in Aboriginal Initiatives from instruction and project management to curriculum development. She has added oral historian to her curriculum vitae as she was the writer for a book entitled Listening To Elders, Telling Stories, Sitting in A Circle, as told by Walter Bonaise, grandson of Chief Poundmaker. This book will be released into education institutions soon.

She has a unique and inspirational way of connecting with her Aboriginal clients/students by integrating fine arts with experiential learning material.

Along the way, Karen has obtained more training in business, communication, and conflict mediation and via corporate and international continuing education departments, in technical colleges and universities, delivers business management, business communication, and human resource modules to many communities outside Edmonton and abroad.
