Early on during our young but exciting Life here at Ideas in Motion Media a bright young girl named Karin Mick joined us on our good news team to tell positive stories in Valparaiso, her hometown. She has made an incredible impact on the communities around her, grown up right before my eyes, and now she steps into her next frontier as she joins Vale Park Animal Hospital to help them care for the loves of their lives -the furry creatures that they care for.
