Growing With Her Business and Her Family Karen May Owner of May Family Chiropractic Not many people can say that they have traveled around the United States, France, Austria and Canada with the U.S. Olympic bobsledding team, but Karen May can. Karen is a chiropractor and sports medicine physician, and being asked to join the Olympic bobsledding medical staff while they tour is just one of the accomplishments she is most proud of. Karen has come a long way from where she started in 2007 when she made the decision to work for herself. She took her degree from the National University of Health Science, along with her husband’s business savvy, and started her own practice in Lansing. Since then, her practice has grown so much that she has welcomed another physician onto her staff. Now this 38-year-old, hardworking mother of three has found a way to balance both motherhood and working. Twelve-hour days in the office aren’t easy, so Karen spends her free time with her children. From running them back and forth from football and gymnastics practice to attending their music performances, she dedicates whatever time she has to them. Karen also loves to cook, but it is definitely hard to replicate a great recipe because she doesn’t use a cookbook. She likes to be outside whenever she can, and spending time in the woods by herself on a hike helps to break away from the stress of a hard day. Karen has a servant’s heart; she gives selflessly and there is nothing that she wouldn’t do to help others. When she deals with anyone, no matter who it is, she gives her complete attention to them, which is why she makes a great physician, a doting wife and a wonderful mother.
