Hi! I'm Karen.

My passion is coaching professionals to redefine how they work, parent, and achieve financial freedom so they enjoy meaningful careers and raise happy and healthy families as their legacy to a better world.

Today’s work and parenting norms trigger stress and burnout from unrelenting job demands and family responsibilities

I know you’re the kind of person who wants to succeed at work + home on your terms — without sacrificing wellbeing.

Today’s workplace and parenting norms trigger stress and burnout from unrelenting job demands and family responsibilities

I know you’re the kind of person who wants to succeed at work + home on your terms — without sacrificing wellbeing.

You’re a high achiever who doesn’t make excuses. But you’re stretched too thin.

Tired of being tired and feeling powerless, wondering when things will get better. You want to:

  • Limit the destruction of unhealthy stress to you and your family.

  • Fit work into life instead of the other way around.

  • Divide parenting and home management responsibilities fairly.

  • Slow the pace of work + life so you have enough time and energy for important relationships and activities.

  • Show up everywhere as a whole person — and true to yourself.

You can ...

Redefine how to work, parent, and achieve financial freedom on your terms — without sacrificing wellbeing.

Take better care of yourself. And have time & energy to put your priorities, goals & dreams first — at least some of the time.

I’m here to help with coaching and courses that provide:

GUIDANCE

SUPPORT

ACCOUNTABILITY

Despite your best efforts to reduce the competing demands of work and family, you’re overloaded and don’t have time or energy to find a better way.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing to work and raise a family.

You’re meant for more …  but it’s hard to know how to get there on your own.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing to work and raise a family.

You’re meant for more …  but it’s hard to know how to get there on your own.

That’s why I’m applying my:

10+ Years as a

WORK-LIFE PRO

20+ Years as a

WORKING PARENT

4 Years as a

COACH

to help you redefine how you work, parent, and achieve financial freedom.

I worked for Johns Hopkins University for 20+ years on school, family, and community partnerships, teacher professional development, and work, life, and community engagement.

In 2017, I became a national board certified health and wellness coach after receiving my training through the Mayo Clinic. I have a Master of Education in adult learning from Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Social Work from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.

Motherhood, marriage, chronic illness, divorce, and resilience make up my story. I know for sure that, with my support, you can redefine how you work, parent, and achieve financial freedom.  I want to be the coach I wish I’d had when I was a working parent. Someone to help me get unstuck and live my life more intentionally and on my terms.
