Bio: Karen has studied financial issues extensively from both the practical, behavioral and the emotional perspectives. She’s been certified by Deborah Price of the The Money Coaching Institute as a Certified Money Coach, a Couples Money Coach and a Business Archetype Coach, and she’s studied with Lynne Twist from the Soul of Money Institute for 2 years on Mastering your Money and Transforming your Life, including studies in Lynne’s Fundraising from the Heart program.
She has made use of that training through her own role as founding board member at Clear Sky, and is currently Chair of the Board and leader of Fund Development, and previously served as Treasurer and Director of Marketing and Design.
At this point in her business called “The Mindful Money Coach”, she’s worked with over 100 clients, helping them untangle their money issues and become much more effective in their work because of it.
Her passion for this arises out of her deep desire to see the world a better place, and her realization that so many amazing organizations don’t have the funds they need to truly fulfill their missions, even though there’s millions of dollars floating around in the economy. She wants you to get that money and get the job done!
