When Karen is working with clients, they feel seen without judgement which allows an open exchange to naturally flow. Most importantly, the foundation of trust created allows her clients to step into the confidence and inspiration and take whatever steps are needed to show up more authentically, and more powerfully, in both work and life.
On and off the job, she is a lifelong learner. Wherever her curiosity leads her —to a new book, a new hiking trail, or on travels her husband and Roxy the dog brings—she finds joy.
