About Me

Impact Artist Changing the World One Life at a Time

Coach Karen

I am honored to be a part of the Coaching by Zen Team and grateful for the opportunity to coach, guide and inspire you on your journey to achieving optimal health and vibrancy!

Living a vibrant life is not just about being healthy, it is accessing and utilizing our inner radiance to infuse and inform our lives with abundant purpose, creativity, fulfillment, resilience and success. Working from the inside out, we discover our unique, self-generative power that transforms obstacles and ignites the guiding light within.

It can be difficult to access our internal guidance when we are faced with health difficulties or life transitions that challenge us to the core.  Since it is completely counter-intuitive to go toward the unknown, having a trusted guide who has been there herself can make all the difference. I experienced an ongoing, near-fatal health crisis that stopped me in my tracks and left me bedridden for months on end. I became severely depressed and neck deep in an existential crisis. This cycle repeated for many years until I initiated a reboot to my system by addressing imbalances through the lens of healing the mind-body-spirit continuum via nutrition, meditation and yoga asana. From there, I continued to balance emotions, manage stress and wake up dormant energies.

Coming back to life was an arduous and self-confronting process that required a degree of inner strength available at times but ultimately, my compassionate and dedicated coach guided me when my inner light was dim. I needed insights and tools to move into action, and she provided those. With her support, I knew would eventually regain my health and live the life I was meant to.

For the last 18 years, I have traveled extensively throughout the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Central and South America. I have embarked on numerous backcountry camping, snowboarding and surfing adventures.

During my travels, I became fascinated with the healing power of medicinal herbs and had the opportunity to sample plants from Fijian Kava Kava to Mimosa Pudica in Dominica. I started experimenting with herbal formulas that enlivened my vitality and energy.

My passion for herbal medicine and the positive impact I witnessed with my own healing led me to pursue a career in the natural products industry. I have spent the last 13 years working as a sales consultant, cleansing and detoxification coach and Herbalista. I have worked with thousands of clients since 2004 and have developed customized and comprehensive Ayurvedic wellness programs. During our sessions, I will meet you where you are in your health journey and we will work at your pace. I will create a foundational, scale-able program based on your goals that will take you where you want to go.

I bring many years of personal and professional experience with a healthy dose of humor and fun! I have earned multiple Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapy certifications in the 8-Limbs of Yoga/Ayurveda with two decades of practice. I graduated from Florida State University with a B.Sc. in Psychology and Anthropology.

Currently, I work with Gaia Herbs as a Sales Leader and I am a Wellcoaches Certified Health and Wellness Coach.

I am passionate about creating road maps to extraordinary health, healing, awakening and transformation, so please reach out with questions, or to schedule a complimentary 30-minute call.

I am confident that I can support you in the achievement of your short and long- term goals.
