I came to Karen seeking career advice over a year ago. I was unsure of the direction I wanted to take in my career, but she helped me seek the career path I was looking for. Karen helped me see the bigger picture and made me realize that my career should be more than just making money, I should be pursuing a career that makes me happy. She also helped me realize that every job has a negative aspect to it and I should only focus on the positives in order to be happier. Even though my career is still in the early phase, she has led me in the right path for me to reach the job of my dreams.
Thank you Karen for always being there for me and helping me when I am in need of advice. D.D. – Rochester, NY
Before I began the coaching process with Karen, I was struggling with feeling stuck in my job and not sticking to my goals, my perfectionism was getting in my way. Working with Karen allowed me the opportunity to work with someone who believed in me and helped clarify the beliefs I needed to change in order to achieve the goals I set for myself. I learned to focus on what will make a difference, how to be open-minded and if I can’t, to walk away so that I can think clearly as well as there is no such thing as a good excuse! I have determined what my priorities are and what I need to do for myself to make ME happy. I am working smarter not harder, setting goals for myself and, most important, sticking to those goals!

I struggled believing in my ability to become a leader. I did not see myself as a leader as an adolescent so it was difficult for me to believe that I could be a leader as an adult. Working with Karen, I found out how critical it is to have some who believes in you and continues to support your growth, regardless of what your goals are. Karen helped me realize that because I make mistakes, I am not a failure. I learn from the mistakes and grow. Part of that learning and growth is realizing that I don’t need to know everything, but I am resourceful enough to find the answers I need! Most important, I now believe in myself and I know that I can accomplish my goals and teach others how to lead! Claire W. Greece, NY
Working with Karen provided me the pathway to learning gratitude, practicing self-compassion and stepping outside of my comfort zone in order to grow both personally and in my leadership role. I have learned that it is more important to enjoy the journey and to let go of perfection. I now recognize that my best strengths help me to be ‘imperfectly perfect’! I appreciate my family and how supportive they are of me and my choices and that I am survivor! When life throws, a curveball, I take action! Karen has also empowered me to be confident in my knowledge and that I am in charge of my choices, including my own happiness. As my coach and mentor, she has shown me the importance of trusting in oneself and that taking risks are a part of the journey to finding inner peace and happiness. Kathy S., Holley, NY
Working with Karen over the last year and a half has been a life changer for me. I made a major change in my life and began questioning my ability and decision to make the change and felt I was spiraling down into an abyss. Karen helped me to see my potential and brought back in me my desire to explore my true desires in life instead of always doing the same as I did before. She showed me that I need to take care of me, to love me and not worry about what others think of my decisions.
Having Karen as my life coach is truly a life changer. More people need to learn to step out of their comfort zone and explore their true self and with Karen’s help I know that they can reach it. Working with Karen will be bring you peace and happiness in your life. MaryJo C., Englewood, FL
Before attending the six week Explore Your Heart Coaching class, I lacked confidence and felt I was aimlessly wandering through my retirement. Working with Karen and Lori helped me to see that I am just as important as everyone else and everyone faces different problems, not just me! The connection and camaraderie of the group sharing their hopes, dreams and concerns was inspiring. Karen and Lori are positive and enthusiastic about what they are sharing with the world. Their ability to listen with empathy and without judgment, keeps the group uplifted and positive and they are able to see our “problems” in a different light, allowing them to suggest and prompt each of us into action. I now am able to see my value in the world and am working towards building my most meaningful life! I am blessed to have them in my life! Judy B., Rotonda West, FL
I have worked with Karen for 20 years. She has pulled me through some very stressful times in my life. She has a way of drawing out the best in you and giving you things to think about that dig deep and beyond the surface questions you are considering. She is one of the most professional women I know and am grateful to have her in my life! Cathy D., Walworth, NY
I have been working with Karen for 1 1/2 years. I learned of Karen from a radio talk-show. She is knowledgable, patient and caring and has taught me to be less judgmental and more tolerant. I also like the fact that she will involve you with challenges. She is a gift. Doug B., Rotonda West, FL
