Hi, I'm Karen!

proud to be a...
  • Super-mom and totally figuring it out as I go,
  • Keynote speaker who still gets bubbly butterflies (learn my trick to turn those anxious nerves into uplifting excitement),
  • Healthy eater who also loves pizza and greasy burgers,
  • Super organized person who can almost never find her AirPods,
  • Amateur musician who sings off-key sometimes while cooking, cleaning, and driving.


which means I’m full of amazing strengths, quirks, and imperfections—just like you.

I'm also no stranger to life's curveballs.

When my husband died suddenly and tragically, I set off on a downward spiral that almost consumed me for good. My life was a mess, I was a mess, and I was in so much pain that I was living on autopilot. In one year, I lost my husband, my car, my house, my job, and so much more.

At just 29 years old, I felt completely and utterly stuck and, honestly, ready to give up. But my 2-year-old son needed me to do more than just hang in there—he needed me to thrive.

So I made an intentional choice

I rebuilt my life by letting go of perfectionism and surrendering to the flawed, human messiness that is life.

I opened my mind, my heart, and my arms to let the light in; I stopped overthinking and started living.

In the process, I created a life I love.
I stopped wishing for things to be “just right” and started embracing my WHOLE life - tragedy, imperfections, challenges and all. And while it might sound too good to be true, once I realized the power of mindful choices the switch was instant.
  • 🌱 I started making better decisions,
  • 🌱 I learned to manage my anxiety,
  • 🌱 I stopped feeling sorry for myself,
  • 🌱 I rebuilt my confidence,
  • 🌱 I started my business,
  • 🌱 I got healthier, and became a better mom,
  • 🌱 I gave a TEDx talk,
  • 🌱 I reclaimed my life.

AND THEN, I CREATED A movement...

My big, bold mission is to pour into each person I reach with the mental skills and practical tools that support healthy thinking, lead to positive actions, and build meaningful lives that ripple out into the world.

I teach people how to consciously transform their thoughts so they can develop a growth mindset and live a life of sustainable joy. Because the undeniable truth is, when you choose to be better, you make the people around you better, and the world a little better, too.
