Level 1 Pilates Instructor, Group Class Instructor
Karen moved to Kansas City in 2005 and earned her M.A. in Counseling in 2007. She is a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, and developed her mental health practice specializing in the use of Mindfulness and Wellness to treat anxiety and mood disorders.  
Karen’s interest in fitness and Pilates grew out her study of the benefits of physical activity and the mind-body connection. A long-time client of Studio7, Karen closed her private practice last year to work in the fitness industry full time. Karen currently teaches POWER and is a graduate of the Pilates Sports Center Pilates Teacher Training program.
Karen is excited for this new adventure and can’t wait to teach and train clients, sharing her love of wellness and maintaining an active lifestyle. When not in the studio, you can find Karen spending time with her husband, friends, and pets; ideally in a park or on a patio with a glass of wine!
