Biographical and Professional Information

Kohler-Kaiser's book, Frozen Grief, is a true story. It was written after the loss of her sister Kathy Baxmeyer(40), nephew Kadin(7) and Kadin's friend Austin after they fell through thin ice on a rural Illinois pond. She has also illustrated a children's ice safety education book with her daughter Danielle Dunlap, See Ice, Think Twice: A Story About Ice Safety.

To help further educate people on the danger of ice, Kaiser has helped form Project Skipper, a not-for-profit organization. A registered dental hygienist, Karen has also published feature articles in dental trade magazines and for 5 years she authored a monthly column in RDH Magazine, a popular dental hygiene magazine.
