Q. Name, nickname and tell us briefly about yourself?
My name is Karen and I moved to the Byron Shire from Adelaide in 2003. My first visit to the area was in Christmas 2002 for a holiday. My family and I loved it so much we returned to Adelaide, resigned our jobs, sold our house and here we are!
Q. What do you love about working here and how long have you been on the Castle team?
I have been a part of The Crystal Castle team for 7 years and find everyone here to be very supportive and respectful of each other both professionally and personally. I love to wander the gardens and spring time is my favourite season to be doing so.
Q. What is your favourite dish from the Lotus Cafe?
I love the Rice and Dahl in winter and the Chicken and Pumpkin Salad in summer.
Q. Do you have a favourite statue and why?
Yes, I consider myself to be a very compassionate person so Avalokiteshvara would have to be my favourite.
Q. If you could buy anything from the Castle, what would you buy?
I am often drawn to “Fairy Magic” it’s such an amazing geode.
Q. What's your favourite crystal and why?
That would have to be Rose Quartz – for love.
Q. When did you get your first crystal and what was it?
My first crystal was a beautiful clear quartz generator that was given to me in 2003 by Naren, the owner of the Crystal Castle because he admired my inner strength and courage.
