A Global Career Development Facilitator certified through the National Career Development Association, I also received training as a Life Coach through the Institute for Life Coach Training. I have a Master’s degree in Communication from Emerson College in Boston, and a Master’s in Teaching from The School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont.
I have worked with a broad range of career and life counseling clients in private practice, my former employment at Harvard, and my current work at the Securities and Exchange Commission. I have success stories from managers, lawyers, international clients, educators, IT professionals, administrative assistants, accountants, event coordinators, artists, etc. It doesn’t matter what your position or profession is when you come for career coaching. It is the courage to grapple with life, strategize, and take steps that is the key to meaning, success, and joy.
“I’ve met with Karen once, worked with her over the phone to edit a resume and cover letter, and have called her to talk me through an overwhelming time-sensitive career decision crisis!! I am SO GLAD she was available when I called out of the blue. Having someone who has become familiar with your experience, strengths, and goals is an asset to have during a career transition. Overall, I have had a great experience with Karen and I am so glad I took the chance and reached out for this type of support.”
