I’m a warm and impactful coach and HR leader with 20+ years of experience coaching both internally as an HR professional, and with private clients. My experience at organizations like Google, Publicis, and WPP has offered me the privilege of coaching people at every level and has given me an insider perspective on how companies work and how to navigate them as an employee.
My expertise and forte is working with clients to clarify vision and purpose, defining actionable steps toward the career and role that’s best for you, and create more meaning and fulfillment in your career and life. We start where you are, and get you where you want to be. My goal is for you to leave a coaching conversation with clear actions to take, confidence, and a new, inspired perspective on your career and life.
I work with clients in multiple capacities: Defining Purpose, Career Strategies, Pivot Strategies, Resume and LinkedIn Development, Networking, Job Search Strategy, Interview Skills, Negotiation. Coaching is an absolute joy for me and I’m deeply inspired by conversations that allow for transformation so you can be at your natural best and find meaning in doing your best work.
Karen has changed the trajectory of my career. Her warm, guiding approach has allowed me to uncover the best of myself and the expertise I offer. Our very first conversation was inspiring, the first that gave me clear direction in mapping my next career chapter. She has given me the tools to properly design my “brand” and hone in on my unique offerings. Karen is a pro and I cannot recommend her enough!
I can’t recommend Karen enough. She has been the most influential coach I have ever worked with and I always look forward to our time together. Within a few sessions, she helped guide me to new insights about myself and helped me to find the professional purpose I had all along. Karen always brings a new perspective and new tools to each conversation, and it’s astonishing how a change in perspective can be the key to something great. I’ve been so energized by the process that we have also moved into other aspects of life/work and I’m excited to see where the conversation takes us.

employees and helps support you in navigating your career. Karen helped me identify what differentiates me from other candidates and craft my message so I am able to tell my story as effectively as possible. She is warm, knowledgeable, and clearly enjoys helping people grow and achieve their goals
I found Karen to be well-organized, honest and effective. Besides being delightful to work with, Karen is a professional who is able to present creative solutions and communicate the benefits. She successfully advised on several strategies for my consulting practice that resulted in increased assignments. Karen was extraordinarily helpful in other areas of my services such as portfolio presentation and resume crafting. She is a brilliant coach and I have no hesitation about recommending her highly.
Karen helped me get my resume and portfolio fine-tuned, and my job search on track. Her expertise was of tremendous value to me.

Karen was able to transform my approach to my career by helping me shift the direction and focus on what I do best. She is an excellent listener and kept the focus on the basics – resume, book, website – as well as incrementally drawing out of me my career vision and breaking it down into methodical steps. She is a pleasure to talk to and I would recommend Karen as a career coach to anyone.
