Karen is a Career Coach focusing on supporting women during parental transitions. Karen supports women with 1:1 career coaching sessions on planning for maternity leave, job or career transitions and navigating a successful return to work.
Congratulations—you’re expecting a baby! Are you wondering how you’ll manage to care for a new human when you’re already working at capacity? Are you wondering about best practices for announcing your news? Are you concerned that your team/clients/boss may flounder while you’re on leave, or that they’ll realize they’re doing just fine without you? Are you planning to breastfeed and can’t imagine how you’ll be able to make time to pump while getting back up to speed? Has the idea that you might not want to continue working at the same pace after you have this baby keeping you up at night? If you’ve had any (or all) of these thoughts, don’t despair. Your maternity coach is here to help.
Karen offers individualized coaching support to help you navigate the parent transition while keeping your career on track. Maternity coaching will enable you to take your leave with the confidence that you’ve managed the work handover professionally so that your key stakeholders can manage as seamlessly as possible in your absence. Coaching support will also help you prepare for your re-entry back to work and in the months after your return. Investing in this support will allow you to maintain your personal brand, manage expectations and boundaries, clarify your priorities, deal with difficult emotions like guilt, and develop practical strategies to handle the changing logistics of becoming a parent (or the parent of an expanding family).
Karen’s coaching has helped hundreds of professionals at all different stages of their careers, from start-ups to Fortune 500 clients, and across industry sectors including finance, tech, entertainment, retail, and professional services.
Karen offers a free 20 minute consultation to get to know each other 1:1 and decide if you'd like to proceed with her coaching services. Coaching services are $185/session, or $900 for 5 sessions.
