About Karen

Hello gentlereaders – I’m Karen!  I’m a third year doctoral student in biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I moved here from Philadelphia after receiving my bachelor’s degree in bioengineering. I’m a mad scientist by day and a stressed out grad student by night. I decided I needed a little accountability in my life as I try to live a more healthy and balanced life.

I consider this blog a wellness blog. To me, wellness includes a lot of things. It includes the obvious things like eating right and exercising, but also preserving my happiness in times of stress, being financially fit, and doing good for the community and our planet. I have realized that I put my work ahead of myself and my happiness too much. As a result, I am not living the full life I want. Yes, grad school is supposed to be tough, but there has to be a way to achieve balance and I am determined to find it.

The title “Staying Sunny” refers to the all encompassing goal of this project – to fight for my happiness!
