Karri lives in East Tosa with her husband, Chris, and 3 teenagers. A former HR Executive, Karri now spends her days working out, volunteering, doing laundry, picking up after the kids (do they ever learn?) and driving her kids around all afternoon/evening (no one ever said it was glamorous...but it is a good life). She also has a side hustle at www.beautycounter.com/karritait, where she promotes safer and effective beauty products. During her free time, you can find her reading a book, binging on Netflix, or sharing a bottle of wine with a friend on the porch.
