Meet Karen

My 32-year corporate career ended when my doctor wanted to put me on cholesterol medicine. He gave me 4 months to lower it on my own, so I researched endlessly and was finally able to lower it by 52 points in 30 days—without pharmaceutical drugs! No smoke and mirrors. No hard-core starvation - I ate real food!

Some of my greatest challenges came from resistant thoughts, feelings, and well-intended loved ones—we rarely embrace change easily. Soon after, I dove head-first into a new career as a Certified Health Coach, Certified Functional Nutrition Coach, and became Board Certified with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and then I launched Living Longer Healthier.

There was a stark difference between my corporate careers in the medical field for 6 years and then the IT world for 32 years, but I'd never lost interest in health, science, and a lifelong love of food. My doctor’s push to lower my cholesterol was just what I needed to merge my lifelong interests and find my true calling as a health coach!

I prefer to coach in a collaborative way. I GET IT--no one can sustain “cold-turkey” changes. “Health is only a forkful away,” means that you can hit your goals just one manageable bite at a time. My clients have been amazed by the breakthroughs they’ve experienced working with me, and you can too!

Working with me is UNIQUE.



I have no judgment where you start and no judgment for how you reach your goals.  I believe you can and will reach your goals!  I am your partner through this journey. Each week you have me giving encouragement, education, motivation, and support.  And you choose your action steps each week for your success.



I’m told I’m fun and funny, but more importantly I focus on you and your goals.  As resistance, challenges, or misunderstandings come up, we address them one by one.



I love doing the research, and you'll have the benefit of my curated info to learn how to choose and be accountable for your actions and build the new lifestyle routine into your daily life STEP-BY-STEP.  I’m your biggest cheerleader and supporter.  When you have successes, we celebrate them.  And when you experience blocks or resistance, we work through them together.


Achieving your goals is our shared objective.  Speeding to those goals is not our primary concern.  One size does NOT fit all.  I firmly believe your health is not a spectator sport and, therefore, your success is inevitable when we take the right amount of time for YOU to achieve your goals…as you are the leader for YOUR change.
