About Karen

Karen curates and showcases "what's working in wellbeing" in live studio sessions and events - for individuals and groups.  She is a wellbeing consultant for businesses seeking to develop products or programming relevant to 21st century trends and needs.

She works with groups of up to 24 at her barn studio in beautiful Marine on St Croix and guides larger gatherings at venues and businesses throughout the Twin Cities.  She believes that working with the whole body - the full range of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical dimensions - accelerates shifts that can have a big impact on your health, your work and your life.

Karen studied Integrative Health Coaching at the Center for Spirituality and Healing/University of Minnesota and is a Certified Co-Active Coach (CPCC), a graduate of the Co-Active Leadership Program, a Heartmath Certified Trainer and a Certified Instructor of Holden Qi gong.

As a Harvard M.B.A and a former Target Corporation senior executive, Karen's passion is scaling wellbeing must-haves into simple and powerful techniques that can be practiced in the moment and that any body can do - especially in the context of the challenging 21st century work environment.


How I use the HeartMath System

I train Resilience Advantage Workshops and I integrate HeartMath tools and techniques into my bodyfirst project work.  I have developed simple techniques that work on spirit/fulfillment, mind/focus and body/flow.  HeartMath Systems are the "missing piece" that impacts the emotional domain - heart/feelings - and are often the best way to begin practicing wellbeing at work.
