I found Karen as she was starting her coaching business and took her up on her 1 hour free session. After that first session, I felt I had really connected to her and that she really understood and cared about my career and my future. What I really appreciated was that she took an immediate interest and gave me quick actionable steps, without any pressure to sign up for more sessions. I could have left it at that but I quickly signed up for more coaching and I have loved every minute spent with her. Karen helped me identify what my values and career desires are and approached my personal career situation from a holistic perspective, taking into account my unique timing and background. I would highly recommend Karen as a coach for anyone looking to unlock a better path for their career.Barbara Y
Karen's friendly and thoughtful approach to personal coaching (with Purpose to Impact) was the perfect mix of patience + feeling like I was just chatting with a best friend. Perhaps it was because she has become one of my best friends over the past 15 years or so, but truthfully she kept everything very professional. I really felt safe to open up with her about some personal things that we've never discussed before. It could have been awkward. It could have been hard to open up about these deeply emotional issues. But she made it so easy and comfortable. But not too comfortable that she still didn't ask the tough questions. Her Jedi-like intuitive lead ME to find the answers to issues I've been struggling with for years. If you've ever wondered if there's a career more suitable for you out there, if you've ever wondered if there can be something more to your life, even struggled with relationships in your family, or if you feel stuck or hopeless and you feel unsure of where to even begin...just get started. Stop wondering and reach out to Karen! You won't regret it.Stefanie Mather
Karens takes a uniquely human and personal approach to career counselling. Rather than focusing on dream jobs, Karen helps you to explore and find your personal brand and really use that as the basis of a career. Karens process emphasizes the importance of working for great people first, and doing great things second as people are at the heart of any experience. If youre looking for a career change or are tired of not being engaged at work, Karen is 110% the person that can help you on your journey!Abhiram Sarvepalli
