Meet Kara, an unconventionally resourceful, former bean-counting, question-asking machine, critical thinker, and strategic problem-solver who’s been turning around stressful, chaotic situations for individuals and organizations for over 20 years. It's how she typically feels most creatively in flow.

What she's up to now:

After a decade of supporting frazzled, Type-A women at the intersection of functional health & lifestyle redesign, she launched Le vital corps Salon podcast in 2016. As salonnière, Kara hosts successful working women – from artists to change agents to astronauts - and ask them how they navigate BS and sidestep burnout. This gets her invited to host all kinds of conversations at conferences and events.

Additionally, she created the 33K Task List Project. It’s her attempt to collect and transform 33,000 handwritten task lists from women into art and explore how we juggle obligation and desire. Take a peek here.

Let’s be real: You follow all the health, wellness and productivity “gurus” out there. You know you should be eating 5+ servings of fruits & veggies, sleeping 8 hours each night, exercising on the regular, working smarter (not harder), and getting along with everyone in your life without drama. Yet, you can’t get it together or self-start lately.

In reality, keeping yourself healthy, happy and focused feels like a part-time job lately. For all your effort (and there’s a ton of it), you still feel energetically drained (if not completely burnt out) and mired by all this static and bullshit around you. Well, my world-weary, new friend, take a mothertrucking deep breath and consider this:

You deserve a life spiked with passion and slathered with joy.

I think every woman does. However, I have a wicked soft spot for my frazzled, Type-A ladies who (1) may have forgotten that fact, (2) believe it applies to other women, but not them, and (3) feel a smidge ashamed that their normally ass-kicking self feels a little busted & stuck right now. 

You need a healthy body + mind to get shit done. Both are mission-critical to achieving all those amazing things you so deeply desire in life. Stressing out or burning yourself down to the nub are definitely not the path to happiness, health, and high performance.
