What People Say
Karen is a professional communicator and changed the culture in my company. She accomplished things that I could only dream of.  Karen brought my far flung retail stores under one roof and one banner. She’s a rare gem. John Fluevog

Owner/Designer, John Fluevog Shoes Ltd

Karen was so genuine and nonjudgmental. Her approachable demeanor and knowledge was very reassuring. She is also very capable of pushing you just enough, and turning up the heat with employees when necessary. Her infectious smile made everyone welcome her positive moving forward energy. Most of all she empowered me as a small business owner to get back on track, and ready to take the business to the next level. What a gift! Audreen Frapwell

Director/Owner, Mrs Frapwell’s Preschool

I hired Karen for a one off session when I felt I was stuck in my both worlds: personal and professional.  Hiring Karen was the best I could have done for getting myself ‘unstuck’ in both of my worlds: personal and professional. She helped me get back in touch with myself, re-evaluate and re-define the goals, and, what was most important for me, get back on the path which I knew I was supposed to be on.. She literally pulled me out of the bog that my mind, chaos and stress of everyday life created. It was like being able to pop your head above the water and seeing exactly where you are and where you need to be, before submerging again into the deep waters of what we call life. Julia Dyadigurova

Sales Representative, Remdal Painting & Restoration Inc.

Karen provided a safe and supportive environment for her seminars. This fostered us through excellent workshops and lessons. Karen’s experience and wide breadth of knowledge were evident throughout all stages.  The daily realities of running a company so often have nothing to do with the reasons we started the company in the first place. Karen is able to bring the company mission statement back into focus by reigniting the fire of personal and professional growth.

Nick Bernal

President/Owner, Preferred Valet Parking

I worked with Karen at a critical time in my life to make a critical career decision… in the last ten years in executive roles making complex decisions on a regular basis, I can tell you hiring Karen was the best investment I have made in my career to date.  Karen coached me through a very complex and multi-layered decision with complete professionalism and unbridled enthusiasm, cutting through the hard stuff with razor sharp focus and challenging directness… she was supportive without being a support group, understanding without coddling, encouraging yet realistic. Never once did Karen try to make the decision for me, but remained steadfast in her role as coach deeply invested in my journey.  The net result was a very clear decision backed by logic and 100% gut checked and executed to plan. I would use Karen again and recommend her without hesitation. Ben Smith
