Laurinda Lee-Retter founded Kind Karma to create an alternative employment model for at-risk and transitioning homeless youth but it was derived from her hobby as a youth. Growing up, Laurinda was always drawn to the arts and even went to university to study music as a violinist. Music, art, writing and jewellery-making were always what brought her the most joy and she is continually appreciative that creativity has allowed her to form not only a company, but a career around what she loves most.
