Connection is the Antidote.

Whether you are a CEO or a stay-at-home-parent, we can not connect to anyone in inspiring ways until we connect with ourselves in honest ways.

I guide leaders to awaken, heal, and courageously lead at work and at home.

Hello there, I'm Karen

I know what it’s like to feel lost in the dark. And I really know what it’s like to be disconnected from yourself and a deep sense of wellbeing.

We are not having a leadership crisis. I believe we are having a human being crisis and that the most impactful leaders are those who learn to lead from their own connected heart and soul.

Through my own professional, relational, and spiritual experiences, I am able to serve as a guide to help individuals, leaders, and organizations around the globe awaken, heal, and courageously lead, both at work and home.
