Kelly Karius has moved from failing her grade twelve year, to becoming an accomplished social worker in 20 short years. She is the mother of three children, two girls, stepsisters both aged 17 and a son aged 15. She was recently asked by her son – an amazed look on his face – “You went to University?”


Background Information

 

Kelly Karius is a social worker based in Melville, SK, Canada.  Kelly is the owner of Karius and Associates; Conflict Resolution Consultants, an agency that specializes teaching individuals and groups how to manage and resolve conflict.  Kelyy's many roles include trainer, mediator, life skills coach, therapist, columnist, and author.

After flunking out of school, Kelly went on to work as a waitress in a stripper bar. After enough figurative slaps in the face, she realized a little education is a good thing and returned home to her family. The truth – her gracious parents drove many hours to pick her up – and never once said “I told you…”.  She enrolled in a course to work with people with special needs. Two children and a divorce later, she realized a lot of education would be a really powerful thing. She enrolled in the Social Work Program at the University of Regina, a two year old clinging to her leg and a baby on her hip.

Grabbing that piece of paper out of the hands of the dark robed man, Kelly went to work for the people that hired the quickest, never realizing that they hired quick because most people left after they’d barely got started. Kelly worked in child protection from January 1, 1998 to December 31, 1998. To date, this was the toughest gig of her life.

Kelly left that comfy government jobs to cries of “What are you doing?”, “Are you crazy?” and “You can’t start a private social work business with only a bachelor’s degree!” , but bumblebee’s aren’t supposed to fly. Amid part-time jobs, including supervising children delivering free papers, and being a church secretary, Karius & Associates, an endeavor with unlimited opportunities for providing information and assistance to people, was born. Karius & Associates has grown tremendously since Kelly published “This is Out of Control!¡” A Practical Guide to Managing Life’s Conflicts. Kelly is trying to break the habit of laughing when she tells people that she is an expert witness for Court of Queen’s Bench in matters involving the custody and access of children. Karius & Associates is currently focusing on seminar development and delivery.  Kelly creates her own schedule. Some people in her community think she does nothing.
