You are exactly who you need to be
I’ll show you why.
In There’s Got To Be a Better Way, I describe my journey tapping into a bigger purpose for my life. I dive deeper into these ideas at speaking engagements, showing you how every experience in your life connects.
Designed for mid-level managers and up, Karen sparks an engaging and surprising conversation on one of the unspoken “soft-skills” of leadership and performance: self-care. Leadership and management can often be lonely and depleting, especially for those who try to live up to expectations rather than showcasing who they really are. Karen shares personal experiences, from inspiring successes to epic failures, and reveals how she created a personal user’s manual to safeguard herself from burnout.

Borrowing from Steve Jobs’ renowned commencement speech at Stanford, “you can’t connect the dots looking forward,” Karen tells her lifelong story of connecting the dots through volunteerism, service, and horsemanship. In this talk, Karen shares intimate details of how she reignited a creative spark that had nearly gone out, leading to both personal and professional transformation.

Can you tailor your talk to focus on our organization’s values?
Yes, absolutely. Reach out and we’ll set up a meeting to discuss customization.
How long are your talks?
All talks are crafted to meet your agenda and needs; they can be as brief as 15 minutes and as long as a full-day guided, virtual interactive experience. In person talks and retreats will resume in the future.
How much do you charge?
As all engagements are uniquely designed, fees vary.
Do you accept pro-bono requests?
Absolutely, but I’m selective. I consider pro-bono requests on a case-by-case basis.
How long in advance do we need to secure you as a speaker?
Currently, I am not accepting in person speaking engagements. I am open to providing virtual content and inspiration and typically need 6 to 8 weeks of advance notice to craft my message tailored to your experience. For panels and Q & As, I can be flexible and am honored to be considered!
