Karla has lived within a 50-mile radius of Des Moines, Iowa for her entire life. Yet, she feels globally connected as she holds dual citizenship in Iran. At age 40, Karla started at the University of Iowa graduate school of social work and earned her MSW in 2001. She is a therapist in private practice at Peace of Mind, in Clive, Iowa. Karla is grateful for the gift of creativity that springs from an understanding of the Three Principles. Currently Karla is working with Ami Chen Mills-Naim, Three Principles trainer and award-winning author, to produce a fairy tale to carry the message of the Three Principles to children and to the adults who nurture them.
