See how Coach Karen guides educated, empowered, body-wise women!

Coach Karen can take a lot of credit for my success. It’s not perfect, but it feels great to have generally added exercise to my routine. I just don’t feel as good– mentally or physically– when I don’t do it.

I will definitely send friends your way as I sing your praises on a regular basis!



Your course Survive & THRIVE really helped me be proactive about my own health. I feel like I have a better way to seek out information now, and I’m on the road to figuring out what my new normal is.  I also really appreciated the whole-picture approach of your course.  Everything from food, to sleep, to how all the different systems in our body work, to exercise – it’s all part of a bigger picture and needs attention.



There was so much good information in your talk. I want Karen to teach me how to speak to a crowd like she does!




I'm a Women's Wellness Warrior who is committed to helping women find realistic, sustainable solutions to creating a healthy lifestyle that works with their real life.

Whether you're looking for a health coach, fitness & wellness ecourses, or a public speaker or podcast guest, I would be honored to walk with you on your wellness journey.
