Karlene Keogh Parks is helping women connect with health services inspired by her own past struggles. 

Keogh Parks moved to America from Germany as a single mother with a 5-year-old daughter. She only had $92.43 in her pocket. With that money, Keogh Parks became a very successful insurance broker. 

In 2008, Keogh and her late husband, Kevin, founded Keogh Health Connection. Through this program, the Keoghs connect families to health services such as food stamps, transportation assistance to clinics and food banks, and other community services. 

The program benefits from club members who are asked to donate, you guessed it, $92.43 in honor of Keogh Parks first experience in America.
