Before I met Karen Davis, I was stuck. Stuck in career. Stuck in relationships. Stuck in sense of self-worth. I felt haunted by unrealized potential. I was living a life based on “supposed to” rather than “want to”. I was “successful” on one side of the coin, but wildly unfulfilled on the other.
Then I hired Karen, and that all changed.
Today I have new clarity and a sense of purpose. My marriage is better. My relationships with my kids are better. I have deeper connections with a whole new echelon of friends. I’m more accepting of the unfamiliar and the unexpected. I’m more emotionally fluent, more present, more courageous, and more content with who I am and what I’m doing every day.
I don’t want to convey that this type of personal transformation is easy. You will face your fears. You will be asked tough questions. You will learn first-hand that courage is the result of action, not the other way around. You will be put in a position to be successful, but ultimately it’s up to you to do the work. With Karen by your side, you will feel appropriately challenged, empowered, and loved all at the same time and the payoff is priceless.
If Karen has a superpower (and she does) it’s a profound ability to connect at a deeply intuitive level, and a wisdom to coach you through in a way that uniquely resonates – with you. She taps-in with such focus and personal attention, you’d swear you were her only client. Yet she does this for the breadth of clients she serves. I don’t know how she does it, but I’m deeply thankful to have been the beneficiary of it. She’s a phenomenal coach and human being.
If you’re looking to take your life or your career to the next level, consider giving Karen Davis a call. And if you’d like to speak with me personally, ask her to put us in touch. I’d be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

My six months of coaching with Karen was the most transformative experience of my life. For context, I’m a very ambitious individual who was feeling stuck and second guessing my career path. I sought advice in many forms, including books, webinars, and even therapy. A trusted friend who had coached with Karen, and whom I greatly admire personally and professionally introduced me to her.
Karen graciously gave me an experience of her coaching first, so we both could determine whether or not we were the right fit for one another. Those initial experiences made me realize the power of her insightfulness, intuition and guidance. I made the decision to invest in myself through coaching, and chose an approach that felt like I’d get a much higher return than further institutional education. Karen challenges you, expands your perception of what’s possible, and carefully works with you to uncover your full potential.
The insights I had and our discoveries, aided me to become an elevated version of myself with an entirely new perspective on the realm of possibilities. She helped me uncover the more empowered owner that was dwelling inside, which has benefited both my personal and my professional lives. She walked me through the navigation of a major promotion and pay raise, effectively giving me a 200% return on my original investment with her. I have every intention of working with Karen again to continue building my leadership qualities and polishing my business acumen. Any person who has or once had big dreams and goals, but currently feels underwhelmed or like they aren’t living up to their full potential, should consider working with Karen. You will love and respect the person you become and the life you build afterwards.

I have had the opportunity and pleasure of working with Karen this past year. I was immediately drawn to her because her way of looking at life was exactly what I needed in a coach and mentor. Karen has the passion, commitment, insightfulness and capability to coach the whole person – not just an executive, or a mother, daughter, wife or person who needs guidance, but ALL those elements. Her intuition was a tremendous asset as a coach because she was able to help me take apart the layers in order to get to the root of issues and then guide me toward my own inner wisdom.
I was having a lot of personal conflict due to sudden and tremendous changes in my life that had me questioning who I was, where I was and where I needed to go. It was affecting both my professional and personal life and as a result put me in a place where I couldn’t see or assess the ‘bigger picture’ and at times, even the management of my day to day. With Karen’s effective coaching style and weekly challenges, she was able to bring me into a place of strength, light and a holistic sense of purpose and passion. Karen’s spark was the light I needed – she brought me to a place where I truly know that the obstacles life has given me does not define me. thanks to the tools that Karen gave me with her beautiful style of coaching. I am much more empowered and know that I will continue to build my future with tremendous fulfillment and happiness both professionally and personally.
–JoAnne Murphy, Marketing Executive, Fortune 500 Company
In one word, WOW! Having Karen as my executive coach the past two years has been the single most transformative and liberating experience of my life – both professionally and personally. Karen is a bold, kind, and amazingly intuitive coach. She helped me identify my core values and strengths, and lean into them to both transition my career and strengthen my bond with my family. I see paths of possibility opening in front of me that I have never seen before. I unconditionally recommend Karen – she is worth her weight in gold! BOOYA 🙂
–Don Dew, Marketing Practice Director, Vertiba
Rarely do we find an individual who develops us to become the leader that has always been there, but may need guidance to meet its true potential. Karen Davis is that individual, wrapped in an executive coach that tests the deepest part of your professional and personal being to achieve transformation.

—Julia Strandberg, Global VP Product Marketing – Covidien Respiratory & Monitoring Solutions
Karen has been the ideal coach for me. She has a strong, been-there, understanding of business and leadership. She tells it like it is. There is no bullshit and it’s equally rooted in the heart and the head. Hopefully we do what we do for a reason. Examining that reason, digging into it, and giving you the tools to amplify your tactics to reach your potential are key skills Karen possesses and a rare combination in my estimation. Thank you for being a mentor, a coach and a friend, Karen. I’ve relearned to trust in myself, tune in to my internal power and my innate ability to lead. I am walking forward with intent.
—Tim Wolters, C0-founder/CEO RoundPegg
What a gift to be coached by Karen! Guided by years of leadership experience and exceptional intuition, Karen helped me see that performance, success, and transformation are about who we are being, not what we are doing. She helped me identify and overcome limiting beliefs and unconscious behaviors that were sabotaging my goal of living an extraordinary life, both professionally and personally. She is intensely focused and serves her clients with passion and relentless commitment to their success.
—Holly Hamann, Co-founder/CMO TapInfluence
Karen is a truly gifted executive coach. She guided me and challenged me to step out of my comfort zone to choose a bigger goal for myself than I thought possible. And, I was extremely surprised and thrilled that I exceeded that goal! Karen hears underneath to what is true and really sees the potential of what is possible. Her vision, clarity and directness are refreshing and inspiring! Thank you so much Karen!
—Kamin Samuel, Kamin Samuel Consulting
What a gift it was to be coached by Karen Davis. Intuitive, direct and practical, she has a knack for taking the invisible and making it visible. Karen helped me gain insight into something that was holding me back from my next level of performance. One key insight from our time together was so profound it has me looking at “what’s next?” with much more clarity and an increased capacity for action. It’s rare to be coached by someone who listens so powerfully and in such a way that allows you access to your own wisdom. This is not “paint by numbers” coaching, but truly unique and tailored for each client. Don’t call Karen unless you want your world to shift.
—Kevin Waldron, Waldron Consulting Group
As I look back over the course of the last year working with Karen, I am astounded by how much I have grown – both professionally and personally. Karen’s intuitive and direct style of coaching is exactly what I needed – someone to ask the right questions, listen wholeheartedly and push me to do the intense work needed to create positive change. Karen saw my full potential which led me to seeing how I can show up in the world differently, ultimately, giving me new choices. Thank you, Karen, for helping me discover my greatest gift – myself. I am forever grateful!
—Jennifer Badding, Healthcare Executive
There are a few times in your life when you will come to a major crossroad, each time you should hope to have Karen by your side to help guide you to personal clarity and professional harmony. My coaching experience with Karen provided a return that far exceeded the financial outlay and time commitments that I invested. Karen recognized my full potential and challenged me into taking actions that not only resulted a multi-fold return on my investment but also gave me greater insights into how I show up in the world today and grounded a vision for my future direction. Karen’s approach is extraordinary and exceeded all my expectations!

Her intuitive gift enables us to discover how we are showing up in the world. From what truly motivates us to what beliefs are holding us back, working with Karen is transformative.

—Todd Cameron, Red Fox Strategy
Karen’s gift is getting to the heart of the matter in ways that are engaging, effective, and transformational. She is highly intuitive and is great at reading inconsistencies in her client’s behavior and body language. Her passion for her work clearly shows through in each and every session I had with Karen. As a consultant to pet companies, she helped me narrow my focus so I could concentrate on my unique abilities that would result in generating the most revenue possible. She has a unique way of telling you what you NEED to hear versus what you WANT to hear without being offensive or off-putting. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for clarity and purpose in their business and life.
—Carol Frank, BirdsEye Consulting
Having Karen as my coach has been an amazing experience. Her thoughtfulness, sensitivity and integrity allow for a safe and open space in which to explore your life and dreams. Her unique ability to ask the right questions encourages her clients to articulate what’s inside of them. Hopes and dreams are not distant thoughts but real possibilities. The amount of kindness and caring that Karen shows is truly inspirational, and her ability to feel what is right and point you in that direction is uncanny. My time with her has taught me to listen to myself, be more patient, and remember that life is all about the journey and that it’s up to me to decide how I want to create it. Thank you Karen, for supporting the expansion of my dreams and bringing some clarity into my life! I would recommend coaching sessions with you to anyone and everyone who has ever hoped and dreamed. But especially to those who have been discouraged or felt lost, and have come to a crossroads in their life. You are a bright, warm, safe, ray of hope and light and you truly are amazing at what you do.
—Sara Mahle, Manager, Rembrandt Yard
I hired Karen as a coach earlier this year as I’m continually working to uncover the next step in my life/career. Karen is trained as an Ontological Coach, and she is great at getting to the heart of how people function, learn and improve in their personal and professional lives. Karen is a warm, intuitive, caring coach who can help you to uncover your roadblocks and is intently focused on establishing YOUR success in life. I enjoy her style of coaching (not consulting!) and she always made me comfortable while sharing my thoughts and desires. With Karen’s help, I was able to uncover what was keeping me stuck for so long. I’m SO glad I met Karen and I know we’ll always share a deep connection. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for guidance (and results) from a life/career coach.

Although marketing is not my favorite part of my job, it is critical to my success. It was so helpful to have Karen there to keep me accountable and help me refine my unique style. Marketing is now much more comfortable for me and has become part of my work routine.

I had the opportunity to work with Karen Davis in my role as CEO of Wright Casino Marketing in 2011. We brought Karen in to assess our sales force and to then coach and mentor each individual sales executive. In addition to this intense sales engagement, Karen interacted extremely well with my entire executive team as we developed new service and selling strategies. Karen is insightful and caring. Her extensive experience coupled with a brilliant sensitivity for encouraging an individual’s confidence was truly effective in improving individual sales executive performance. I personally gained a refreshed enthusiasm for strategic sales planning because of her guidance and partnership. I found Karen to be a wonderfully calm and direct ally. She notices details, yet has a global view of all that is around her. I continue to believe in Karen as a friend and colleague, and unconditionally recommend her.
