A Note From Karen:
“As wife, mother, nurse and many other identities, I often found myself struggling to know how to take care of myself. Around the time I was learning more on holistic wellness and the need for self-accountability in living well, I was faced with my own health concern. I began to explore who I was body, emotion and essence and learned more on my diagnosis. I found encouragement from family and friends to maintain and build confidence in self, leading me to be empowered in my health choices. So, now I bring to you all that has been given to me: a safe place to ask and learn more about your personal health concerns, a calm heart to encourage you in self- confidence and an empowering coaching model to guide you in making powerful choices for your health. Come walk this journey with me!”
Begin. Believe. Become.
