“Karyn is one of the best speakers I have heard and one of the kindest to work with. From the first conversation, she knew immediately what we were looking for. Karyn was one of our keynote speakers at our fourth Dan and Linda Silverberg Heal the Healer CME symposium at University Hospitals-Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and packed the house with over 300 attendees. She brought dynamic healing, inspirational humor and legitimate credentials to the event. The testimonials were enthusiastic and I still remember her keys points months later. It is with absolute great confidence that I recommend Karyn Buxman as a speaker to your group. I cannot wait to work with her again.”

The response we’ve received from our conference attendees has been overwhelming! Karyn Buxman’s background in nursing was truly an asset in working with our group—she understands what they go through on a daily basis, and that was brilliantly conveyed to them throughout her presentation.
