For over eight years, Karen’s speaking, teaching, preaching, training, ministering, praying and coaching has encouraged, inspired and motivated people to:


•    See themselves as God sees them – loved, confident and brilliant.

•    Exercise their faith to bounce beyond setbacks, disappointments, and surprises.

•    Clarify their purpose and stay on their destiny path by creating strategic action plans.

•    Break through limiting beliefs like sabotage, fear, perfectionism, procrastination and poverty.


After having an epiphany about her purpose and destiny during prayer, God showed Karen her business in a vision, including the name.  Karen removed the "golden handcuffs" as an award-winning sales producer for Xerox Corporation, resisted fear and took the leap of faith to start her dream business – Rocket 2 Freedom, a motivational company.


Karen’s shift also led to her writing her first book, Pray Now: A Guide To A Richer Prayer Life during this pressure-filled time. In it, she shares how prayer shifted her from fear to boldly taking action. Karen uses this book as her curriculum to teach and impart the power of prayer to hundreds of Spirit-led leaders both women and men.
