Karli M. Butler

“I am at Curt’s Café because I believe in its mission. I am committed to empowering young women with the tools and information they need to make healthy choices for themselves. I try to meet each of them where they are and serve as both a guide and resource for them.   I am inspired by their ambition, resilience, and resourcefulness, and  am always excited to hear about the great things they accomplish after Curt’s.”
