Karen has worked in healthcare for over 20 years—clinical, administrative and fundraising—where she developed a passion for community-based healthcare services and advocacy for under-served populations. Her own chronic pain has been a teacher that inspires compassion, a necessary focus in pain management, palliative care and end-of-life care. Her quest for resources for herself and others led her to Take Courage Coaching, and she is thrilled to be part of the team who helps others thrive in spite of pain. Karen’s hobbies include creative writing, photography, yoga and Qigong. She lives on the west coast with her husband.
