My desire to empower others started when I first discovered how to empower myself.

Hi, I’m Karen. When I was 29, my life was in shambles. I suddenly became a widow when my husband, Richard, was tragically killed. I lost my house, my car, my job and so much more. 

My life was a mess, I was a mess, and I was in so much pain that I was living my life on autopilot. I didn't know how to get myself back on track, how to start living again, how to move forward... I felt completely stuck.

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by life that you wanted to give up?


That was me. 

It wasn’t until the day my 2-year-old son walked into my room and asked “Mommy are you going to get up today?” that I knew I needed to change my life. Looking at him, I realized I couldn’t give up. I needed to begin my journey to healing so I could once again build a beautiful life for myself and my son.  

In that moment, I did something that changed my life...

I told myself,

Changing the story I was telling myself gave me the boost I needed to take action.

With one thought, I started moving forward. I stopped telling myself a negative story and starting thinking positively. Over time I rebuilt my confidence, redefined my life, and reshaped my choices to create a life I love. I discovered a simple mindset exercise that can change your life - I call it, Stop & Shift.

what's going on...

Stop & Shift helps you silence negative thoughts and shift your mind to a productive + positive response.

I used it to...

The Stop & Shift method turns on the prefrontal cortex which is like the CEO of your brain.  It’s the area that helps you learn new habits, take brave action steps, think strategically and work towards goals. 

If you’re ready to get unstuck and be part of the growth mindset movement, pre-order now and you’ll receive a special first-edition copy of Stop & Shift. You’ll also gain access to my e-book Now What? — the prequel to Stop & Shift — which is available now!

I believe with every ounce of my being that the Stop & Shift technique can change the lives of so many people, including you.


Join me on the transformative path to a healthy mindset. Together, we will become stronger and inspire radical change and healing in our world.

Don’t give up.
