Dr. Karyn Ward serves as the Secretary for Women of 4D. She is an educator by trade and works to add knowledge and share wisdom with people she encounters in the countless places life leads her. Her knowledge is freely shared about teaching, motherhood, finances, faith in God, friendship, or any other experience she has had, from the serious to the humorous. She constantly works to educate her infinitely talented teenage son, so he is prepared for life. Karyn’s time as a single mom has taught her discipline, time management, financial responsibility, and the need for self-care. She recognizes that words have power, so she chooses to use hers, to uplift, educate, and empower others. Her words are not used as weapons of destruction but as tools of knowledge, shining a light that dispels myths, untruths, and ignorance.
