Meet the Board

Captivating. Motivating. Determined. Selfless.  
Just the kind of charisma you want in any a meeting with this group, no-one is ever board!

Meet Karen Urbanek - President

Karen’s passion for life, excitement for health, and love of people come together to make her a dynamic and motivating educator.  Once you hear her speak, you will hear her zeal and expression in your mind as you read her book, cook-book, blogs or emails!

In 2008, Karen's family opened Nature’s Garden Health Center in the remote city of Allenton, Wi – Population 400.  People came from hours away to shop at the only non-GMO grocery store, which offered the largest selection of organic produce in the state!  Of course Karen’s jam-packed educational classes in this remote farm field area were a sign that things were going well!

Within a few years Karen’s family was busy with two wellness centers, two organic grocery stores and two cafes in WI and Utah.  By 2014 Karen’s passion for teaching led the family to close everything and focus solely on education.  Karen’s TNC course is offered worldwide, and available right here on her dream site, I2H2E, where she can introduce you to the amazing Doctors and Professionals she has met along her journey! Karen relishes in studying, their 11 children, 4 grandchildren, creating recipes, and writing!
