Growing up with a fitness instructor and weight loss center manager for a mother, Karen had it drilled into her from childhood that fat was equivalent to the devil and carbs were the best choice. She struggled with her weight in high school, turning to extreme dieting and even developing a severe eating disorder.
When her daughter was born she then developed severe hormone dysfunctions, the perfect storm for steady weight gain, food sensitivities, rashes, and other health issues. It was then Karen took matters in her own hands; learning to manage her stress, address underlying emotional trauma, and balancing her hormones.
Karen spent thousands of hours and obsessed with researching dieting and health. She then went on to train with The Institute of Transformation Nutrition, a unique nutrition certification program the incorporates science, psychology, and spirituality. Addressing diet, hormones, digestion and stress management, Karen was able to heal her body. She now directs her passion and expertise towards helping other women overcome their own trauma and finding triumph.
