It’s about you!

With online coaching, you can learn how to turn off work and mentally disconnect so that you can be present in the moment and be a fun, relaxed woman. Are you ready to:

  • Eliminate the overwhelm
  • Create the work-life mix that allows time for your health and fun
  • Stop living with guilt and regret that you are not doing enough in any area of your life

Are you ready to stop feeling like you’re failing at work and life? Follow your internal compass instead of trying to please everyone else? Re-engage with what is really important to you?

You can take charge of your choices to create the time, energy, and daily practices to rebalance your wellbeing and live a life of joy and meaning.

Why Working with Me Is Unique

My personal experiences working fulltime and raising three busy kids, serving as a work-life effectiveness expert at Johns Hopkins University, managing chronic illnesses while working, and emerging from my most devastating life event to finding joy makes me unique as a health and wellness coach. And, I have a lifelong desire to support people as they pursue their highest potential!

I am one of about 1,000 health and wellness coaches who passed the first certification exam for National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWC).

In addition to my health and wellness experience, I have the vantage point of working with individual employees as well as a large organization on a broad portfolio of award-winning work-life services and programming. I have struggled with many of the same challenges you face, so I listen very attentively with warmth, respect, and compassion.

You choose where to start, how much to take on, and the pace of change. If you’d like, I’ll share research and best practices so that you can leverage your body, mind, and spirit to thrive and live the life you want.

My comprehensive online coaching program is not one-size-fits-all! I offer a step-by-step system for working moms who want to live their purpose with less overwhelm, guilt, resentment, and regret.

My 10-Step How to Pursue Your Professional Dreams Without Guilt and Resentment program is grounded in:

  • Research and evidence-based practices
  • The belief that successful rebalancing efforts require choosing to integrate wellbeing practices into our professional routines
  • My personal health and wellness quest
  • My lifelong desire to help individuals reach their highest potential

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 the life you want to live.


Karen helped me recognize that I was setting unrealistic goals for myself. She talked with me each week about my goals and helped me set smaller, more realistic and attainable goals. Then as I met those goals successfully, I added or changed my goals as needed each week. All the while, Karen helped me keep in mind that I should not set goals according to my comparison to or admiration of someone else. ~GV

I changed my ways while working with Karen. She and I had good communication. She listened and had a good respect of my wellbeing. I learned a lot. ~NP

My experience working with Karen was very positive from day one. Our first conversation was so open and so easy, it was as if we knew each other already. A very high level of trust was established within the first conversation. Now I am functioning very well, I can face the unexpected, sleep well, and enjoy life as I used too. It almost feels like a new me. ~CB
