Karen’s Executive Sales Management career has spanned over 20 years: 16 years with a Fortune 500 Electrical and Data Communications Company and eight (8) years with a privately held Bay Area Information Management company. Karen has managed, and coached sales teams varying from 9 to 55 employees and led High Performance Selling programs and sales training and coaching programs throughout her 23 years in Executive Sales roles.
Karen left the corporate world in 2015 to pursue her passion of helping other women “get out of the fog” and find balance in their lives. The model of coaching she does balances self-awareness with a keen agility to help create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others, and help create success in what matters most. This method is very innate and nurturing which allows her to use her natural gift of intuition.
Karen was born and raised in Burlingame and attended Roosevelt Elementary, Burlingame Intermediate and Mercy High School. Karen earned her Bachelor of Arts in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from San Francisco State University, and is a graduate of the Richardson Developmental Sales Coaching Program; and is a Certified Professional Co-Active Life Coach (CPCC) through Coaches Training International as well as a licensed facilitator of the “Oh Shift!” program for adults and “Oh Shift!” for teens.
She and her husband Paul reside in Burlingame Hills; her 15-1/2 year old son attends DesignTech High School (d.tech) on the Oracle campus and her 12 year old son attends Burlingame Intermediate School. Karen is the 2017-18 President of the Burlingame Hillsborough Neighborhood Club and on the BCE Advisory Board and very active in the local community. She loves Pilates, hiking, the beach, and spending time with family.
