“The journey is about progress, not perfection”
Karen’s story has always been about supporting others. She has been in the helping profession for the past 25 years; her focus has always been empowering women. From counselling women fleeing domestic violence in her early career to the last 15 focused on prevention and education. But here’s the twist: As she was helping everyone else, she forgot about her own needs. Everyone else came first. Her kids, her spouse, her job. She was there as an ear for people, whenever they needed it. She was the one that people came to, she was always showing up. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with burnout that things started to change and she began to put herself first. Now, as a certified Life & Wellness coach and Reiki master, she helps busy Moms to prioritize themselves so they can reduce their stress, increase their energy and find some inner peace. Karen knows that a healthy Mom means a healthy family. Tired of being at the bottom of your own to-do list? Connect with Karen so she can support you in creating a life you love.
