As a parent and family coach and blogger, Karen advocates rethinking parenting, through choosing connection, championing consent and cultivating cooperation in families and education.
For over 20 years – from her studies in Modern Languages at the University of Cambridge, England and at the Ruprecht-Karls-University of Heidelberg, Germany, to her work as a translator, trainer, consultant and project manager in knowledge management, communication and learning in a large global corporation – human relationships, behaviour and personal development have been the focus of Karen’s work.
As a mum of a teen and preteen twins born less than two years apart, she has had the privilege of shifting that focus to parenting and family relationships, experiencing the joys and challenges as a parent, as well as building deeply connected parent-child relationships firsthand.
In 2019, she completed her educational-psychological training and was certified as an attachment and relationship-oriented parent and family coach with a thesis on sibling rivalry.
Karen was born in the UK and now lives in Germany with her husband, three children and two cats. Karen’s children are growing up with two languages, across different countries and cultures. Besides her work, she loves spending time with her children, travelling, running, and learning new things. She loves ice cream and chocolate cake, especially when vegan, and dreams of a house by the sea.
