ABOUT

Karen Patterson / 彭凯琳

Karen Patterson lives in Calgary, Canada with her daughter and dog. After graduating from the University of Calgary with an honors degree in Cultural Anthropology with a minor in Art Photography, she then traveled to China to teach English for ‘just one year’. That one year morphed into 15, and she arrived back to Calgary in 2011. She is now a dedicated full-time real estate agent, who also assists expats moving to Calgary settle in and find schools for their kids as a freelance Destination Service Consultant. As if that is not enough, Karen enjoys providing culture awareness training as a freelance Cross-Cultural Trainer. Travelling, reading, urban walking, attending theatre, dance, opera performances and art exhibitions rounds out her time when not working. Dining and being with friends help keep her happy and balanced.
