Hi, my name is Karen Collier from southern Illinois. I've lived here all my life. I am married and we have two sons who are married. They have given us four wonderful grandchildren. I have recently retired from teaching. I do a little subbing, give music lessons, and now I am so excited to start my Pampered Chef business. I have been using PC for about 24 years and I love their products. I love to cook, bake, and I am excited to help young women like my daughter-in-laws with useful tips using the product and helpful tips for cooking and baking.
