Karen is an herbalist and health coach who specializes in helping busy, stressed-out people regain a little balance and sanity in their lives.
Karen was inspired by her late mother's journey with cancer to dedicate her life to helping others learn how to prevent chronic illness. The experience led Karen to Health Coaching, which is focused specifically on helping folks make positive behavioral health changes.
Karen gained a Certificate as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach in 2019. Karen also has a Certificate of Therapeutic Herbalism circa 1991. In between, she served as Herbal Educator, Herbal Information Specialist, Nutritional Educator for an MD, Sales Professional, Researcher, and Mom.
Karen has learned from countless motivational and sales trainers, from renown herbalists and wellness leaders, and most recently from the inspiring superstar team at IIN (the Institute for Integrative Nutrition). Perhaps the most relevant training of all comes from Karen's vast life experience, a few hard knocks, and by learning to listen deeply to herself and to others.
Karen is actively working toward her National Board Certification for Health and Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWC).
Karen loves nature, healthy cooking, gardening, and adventures of any sort.
