Alumni Success

Runs her own counseling services, published four books, recognized by NAACP

That’s the advice CEO Karen A. Stewart gives to students pursuing their college education.

Karen, an Argosy University, Dallas alumna, knows how far determination and dedication can go. She received an associate’s degree in Substance Abuse Counseling from Eastfield College, and earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Argosy University, Dallas in 2005. She says getting her college education has made a big difference in her life. “I thank God every day for Argosy,” she says. “Attending Argosy at an older age gave me something to strive for.”

The faculty and staff at Argosy University, Dallas has had a major impact on Karen’s life. “The staff was knowledgeable in their fields,” she says. “Before I graduated from Argosy University, I was notified by a staff member after reading a story from The Dallas Morning News on me,” she says.

Karen has also inspired her children in their educational pursuits. “My kids saw the sacrifices I made to further my education,” she says. “All four of my children went [on to higher education].”

Professionally, Karen worked as a counselor intern at several treatment centers including Nexus, Dawson State Jail (Dallas, Texas), and Welcome House (Dallas). She left her position as the lead counselor at Welcome House to start her own counseling services, Karen’s Mobile Counseling Services.

“I went from being an intern to CEO. It is amazing,” she says.

Karen has been awarded for her efforts. She has been recognized by the NAACP, received a professional social workers award, and won several writing contests at Eastfield College. In addition, Karen has written and published four books — two children books titled Gussie the Giving Goose and The Perfect Day and two novellas titled Lusha and Her Man and A Ray of Hope.
