Karyn Buxman, RN, MSN

A humorist, internationally recognized expert in therapeutic humor, and former nurse, Karyn Buxman began her career in speaking when she realized it didn't require white support pantyhose, didn't involve body fluids, and didn't have to be done in 12-hour shifts. President of HUMORx and an active member of both the Applied Sciences for Therapeutic Humor and International Society of Humor Studies, Buxman shows people how to use humor for brain health, stress management, manage conflict with humor, increase creativity through laughter and play and in dealing with disease management. Her mission: To improve global health, prevent diseases like diabetes, heart and stroke, cancer and age related illnesses to heal the humor-impaired!

For 15 years, Karyn has been speaking to audiences about the application of humor in a work setting. More recently, she has combined her work with the Six Advisors Success System; a marriage of the formal science of axiology and the success principles defined by Og Mandino in his book, The Greatest Salesman in the World, in order to effect real change in the arenas of business and personal growth.

Karyn is President and Founder of HumorX. Through her years of research and experience, she's determined that humor and its powerful consequences (physiological, psychological, social and spiritual) offer benefits in the work place that can be the catalyst for change that will move groups forward and allow individuals to live more positive, productive and happier lives. Karyn is serious about humor and business growth!

Karyn recently relocated to sunny, Southern California. Leaving behind the Show-Me State for sunshine and beaches, she is thrilled to call San Diego her home. Her hobbies include making beds, folding laundry, washing dishes, vacuuming, and scrubbing toilets. (Would you like to buy a bridge?)

Karyn shares insights from the emerging field of neuromarketing; she explores the many uses of humor in the workplace; and she gives audiences practical strategies for surviving and thriving by harnessing their sense of humor.

    "Karyn hosted and spoke at our annual client meeting this year. She is highly professional, very accommodating, and most importantly an excellent speaker. She dealt with everything we threw at her with grace, including working with a robot! She received very high scores on our post-event survey and clients loved her message - a blend of researched, legitimate but fun and uplifting personal tools to help manage their professional and personal lives. She was the highlight of the event this year."
