“I love to show people what they can achieve with what they have, and to inspire them to realize their potential to do more!”
Karen provides a warm, friendly and trusting relationship in which people can be honest about their issues around money. She creates a safe environment where people are not judged, and instead gain the knowledge and skills to make their lives easier and happier.
Karen will never forget Sunday nights as a child, when she would watch her mother at the kitchen table paying bills and balancing the cheque book. Although Karen was kept at arm’s length during this weekly ritual, in these memories were born her earliest respect for money management.
Years later Karen would wish she’d been privy to her mother’s financial wisdom. Having become a mother of three, operating her own small business, finances felt like everything but simple. Karen watched money flow in and out of their lives, often faster than she preferred, but she was determined to take control and to manage the family finances with success—this time bringing her kids along for the journey. But where to begin: paying down the mortgage or the credit card? saving for retirement? and how much?
Karen took course after course and, to her surprise, found that she couldn’t get enough. She became well-enough informed and then went on to become an expert. Financial know-how became her passion, and her expertise bred the eagerness to help others. Becoming a money coach was the most natural next step. Most simply, it was who she had become.
Today, Karen believes deeply in the potential of others. Her business focuses on singles, couples, families and the self-employed and helping them to live fulfilling lives.

A Friend, Counselor and Support
Karen was much more than a coach, she was friend, counselor and support during some challenging times. She always believed in us, sometimes more than I believed in myself. She became one of the family and built a trusting relationship very quickly. She will remain a life long family friend.

Helping Couples Mediate The Financial Divide
Very very good. Fair prices, good value, and offering a good system that is easy to follow, and takes reality into account. Dealing with money, debt is one thing she is very good at, but Karen is also good at helping couples mediate the financial divide – we know! I would highly recommend her!
