As a Mom, I find that I am often struggling to balance work with my family. Working with Karen was wonderful. Throughout the whole process I could see I was in experienced hands.  She provides structure when it is needed, and is able to completely customize her care when that is needed too. She has an amazing ability to understand where you are in your career and life, push back when you need it and leave you feeling empowered with simple, manageable steps to take to you to your new goals. Karen has a huge gift and I encourage everyone to experience it firsthand.”

When I was looking for a potential career coach in the Vancouver area, Karen Begemann stood out to me as she was particularly interested in helping stay-at-home moms find a way back to paid employment. After a very informative initial telephone conversation, I asked Karen if she would be willing to put together an introductory workshop for members of my moms’ group. In less than 3 weeks we were listening to Karen’s inspiring workshop. It not only addressed the typical questions on how to look for a job but also honed in on the emotional, logistical and psychological challenges that the whole family will face when a stay-at-home mom decides to go back to work. We all left the workshop feeling much more confident about the start of our journey of going back to the professional world.
