All of my clients are outstanding people, and Karen Wellert is no exception. Yesterday, she and Gov. Janet Napolitano received awards presented by Arizona Woman magazine.

Napolitano was named Arizona Woman of the Year at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix. Wellert, president and CEO of Adultcare Assistance, was named winner of the magazine’s Golden Heart of Business award.
Here’s what Karen said in response to her award…
It seems that the more grateful I am, the more I have to be thankful for!
On Wednesday, May 30, I attended The Who’s Who in Business Awards luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa. Arizona Woman’s magazine presented and honored two women who have changed their community for the better. Gov. Janet Napolitano was awarded The Woman of The Year award and The Golden Heart of Business Award was awarded to me, yes me, I can’t believe it. It is an honor to be selected, from the long list of nominees, from a group of such distinguished powerful women.
There are no better words to describe how I feel right now, other than grateful. I’m grateful that I can run a business that allows me to live and work my values. I’m able to extend a helping hand to our seniors, ensuring they are cared for with dignity, comfort and security. It’s been my great joy and mission for more than 35 years. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities I have to provide guidance and leadership to other non-profit business through my service on several boards and advisory councils.
I’m so grateful for the tender dedication of my employees. It’s a privilege to lead the most committed caring work force in the Valley. They’re very passionate about the caliber of care that we give to our clients. I’m thankful for their sweet commitment to both the business, and the spirit of what we do for our senior clients.
Thank God for our beautiful country, for my family and friends, for my freedom and good health. Yes, I have much to be grateful for. So thank you for allowing me to share my appreciation for the recognition of this Golden Heart of Business Award. I’m grateful beyond words.
