About Karen
I am a 49 year old stay at home mom. I am married to my wonderful hubby Stanley. We have two awesome children Summer 23, Connor 12 and our fur baby Ryder. In my spare time I love to hike, swim, read and work in my garden/flowers as well as volunteering at our church. I chose Core57 because of the personal touch. In my initial visit I sat with Kolleen and discussed my goals and expectations. She listened with genuine care about my physical and mental well being. Core57 offers a variety of classes of varying degrees of difficulty with numerous scheduling times making it convenient. Overall, she designed a program that
promotes my development at my pace and personal drive. Additionally, Core offers nutritional consultations/programs to help maximize my overall health.
