“Beginning with my first (complimentary) phone call with Karen, she projected a degree of competence and caring. I have seen Karen in her home office in Arlington at varying intervals for two years while I personally negotiated my career transition after fourteen years of teaching. Her intuitive and professional nature allowed me to take her advice seriously, while I learned to assess and take my own voice and interests more seriously.
Since I began working with Karen, I have left teaching as I concurrently selected a graduate program at a local university (due to graduate in two months), secured a 1000 hour internship with a top Boston area company and acquired clarity on my one year and five year career objectives. While working on my resume, I found her to be timely and insightful with feedback, while leaving me with the true sense that I was the owner of that document. Karen has always been calm, collected and prepared for each session. She takes notes and references them in later sessions while also leaving me with action steps to take home. Overall, I am very glad to have worked with her. Of the three life/career coaches I have worked with, she has by far been the most practical.”
