Hi I’m Karis,

Marketing Manager, London, UK

I joined Peacebeam in August 2018.  It came about by a series of chance meetings and really felt like serendipity.  I remember being really struck by the passion, empathy and drive of the whole team and immediately feeling at home.  Initially I joined as Social Media manager and helped with marketing ideas but as time has gone on I have moved over to do more on Content, which I love.   Seeing all the positive feedback – in reviews and on social media - is the most rewarding part of the job, and it feels lovely to think that what we’re doing is helping people in their every day lives.  

When I first joined, I was only planning to stay for a couple of months but when the time came to leave I found that I really didn’t want to! We were just about to launch on Insight Timer and by that point I felt much too invested to walk away.  It feels quite special to work with an all woman team, and everyone is so supportive and encouraging, even from the other side of the world!

One of the biggest highlights for me was writing the Peacebeam series for children which is being released as our first audiobook in June.  Although I’ve written a few Peacebeams, it was the first time I’d developed an entire series from beginning to end. At the moment I’m working on a new series which I’m really looking forward to sharing in the next few months.  

It’s really exciting to think of where Peacebeam is going and to see it grow and I can’t wait for all the things to come.
