Karen Tietjen

Karen has been freelancing for four years. She is a contributing lifestyle writer for The Zoe Report, where she covers topics including home decor, career, finance, mental health, relationships, and travel. Her work has also been published on Bustle, Zappos’ “Beyond the Box” blog, and several other pet, food, and lifestyle websites.



Karen lives in Maine with her husband and dog (who’s the best coworker ever), working remotely with clients all over the country. She enjoys the quaint cities and coastal views of New England, but during the long winters, she escapes to Florida every now and then for an extra dose of sunshine.
