Karen Clark Salinas

I’m on a mission to help all working women pursue their life’s purpose and raise happy and healthy families—without sacrificing wellbeing.

I coach working women to stop the destruction of unhealthy stress on their wellbeing by:

  • Identifying their zone of healthy stress and how to stay there.
  • Building resilience.
  • Cultivating happiness.

I’m taking a stand for YOU. And your dreams. (You know the ones.)


Are you ready to stop feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and chronically stressed?

Feeling too tired to try and powerless, without hope that things will get better anytime soon? Afraid that you’re falling short at work + life?

Feeling too tired to try and powerless, without hope that things will get better anytime soon? Afraid that you’re falling short at work + life?

Do you want to take back some control and reconnect with what is really important to you instead of trying to please everyone else? Put your dreams, goals, and priorities first—at least some of the time?

If this is you, you need a clear path and a breakthrough.

And that’s where I come in. I’m in the business of breakthroughs.

You can stop unhealthy stress for good and live a productive, joy-filled life with ease! I will help you figure out your next best steps to live a life you love.

Why Working with Me is Unique

My personal experience with:

  • Excessive stress from divorce, working fulltime, and raising three busy kids
  • Serving as a work-life effectiveness professional at Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Health System
  • Managing chronic illnesses while working
  • Emerging from my most devastating life event to find joy

makes me unique as a health and wellness coach.

I understand what it feels like to try to live and work with exceptional stress. To feel powerless with depleted resilience.

I’ve helped myself and others identify their zone of healthy stress and how to stay there, build resilience, and cultivate happiness during difficult times. All of which can get you closer to living a life you love.

I am one of the first 1,100 coaches who earned the  National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWC) certification.

I have struggled with many of the same challenges you face, so I listen very attentively with compassion, respect, and encouragement. I am the guide on the side who understands you, how tired you are, and what you’re trying to achieve.

You choose where to start, how much to take on, and the pace of change. I’ll share research and best practices to help you leverage your mind, body, and spirit to thrive and live a life you love.

My comprehensive online coaching programs aren’t one-size-fits-all! I offer a step-by-step system for working women who want to pursue their dream careers and raise happy and healthy families … all without sacrificing wellbeing.

I offer health and wellness solutions for very busy women so that they have the time and energy to put their dreams, goals, and priorities first—at least some of the time. And, my superpower is believing in that dream until you believe it too.

​I know it takes time and effort to rebalance wellbeing. You didn’t get here overnight. We’ll start where you are, help you take charge of your choices, and find a sustainable pathway to wellbeing and a life you love.
