Our Town Podcast: Karen Petersen



256 Today is proud to present the Our Town Podcast. Check here every week for the latest episode from Troy Bye, North Alabama’s newest favorite son.

The Our Town Podcast showcases all that is good in North Alabama. Each week, guests are invited from business, sports, entertainment, education, the arts, and so much more to discuss all aspects of living and working in The 256.

Each of us has a story and each of us grew out of a circumstance.


Karen Petersen is an inspiration! 
Currently, Karen works and serves the community in her role as director of development at Wellstone.
Karen overcame her own addiction to alcohol for 15 years of her life. She is now 20-plus years sober and shares her story to inspire others that there is hope. We can overcome those addictions that just seem impossible to overcome.
In addition to sharing her own story, Karen talks about the many advances and improvements in Huntsville to helping those with mental health issues, addiction, and so much more where a concerted effort is being placed into bringing more treatment centers to our area.
Karen is actively involved through events such as the Beacon of Hope to raise the money needed to bring more in-patient facilities to North Alabama. We also discuss her Norwegian roots, the exciting times ahead for her family, and so much more.
