About Koren

Hello + welcome! I’m Koren, and I partner with over-achievers to help them become the leaders of their lives. But before we get into the nuts and bolts of how I do that, can I tell you a little about myself?

  • I am a mother, wife, family member, friend, entrepreneur and community builder.
    Never a dull moment in this rich, full life!
  • For my radio show + podcast “How She Really Does It,” I invite my guests to share their unique success stories, and encourage my listeners to embrace their inner leaders. I’ve hosted the show for over 14 years and built an archive of 800+ episodes, including interviews with Brené Brown, Daniel Pink, and Danielle LaPorte.
  • I’m a Daring Way™ facilitator and Master certified Life + Leadership Coach. In my twelve years as a coach, I’ve helped hundreds of people release the shoulds and have-tos, and build the lives they truly want to live.
  • Early on, I was confident that higher education would be my ticket to success. So not only did I earn a BA from one of the top universities in the country—University of California, Davis (go Aggies)—I also completed my masters degree. I then spent 13 years teaching at Sacramento City College before switching gears.
  • Swimming is a part of my soul! I was a NCAA Division II National Champion, a Collegiate All-American, and inducted in the University of California, Davis Hall of Fame. Practicing and competing helped me learn about myself, practice courage, + explore how to fail and persevere. Nowadays, I use my passion for the pool to coach our local swim team, the Aquamonsters.

My podcast and coaching practice both focus on redefining success, reframing failure, and realigning your inner compass. I believe that when we truly listen to others, we can see what is possible within ourselves. When people step up to share the honest, backstage truth behind their success, the doors of possibility open for us all. I want all of my work to create welcoming spaces where inspiration + possibility meet.

I’m ready to guide you to becoming the leader of your life so you live from your own badassery!

Let's Talk About Why You're Here

What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
~ Mary Oliver

Tell me if this sounds like you: You’re highly educated and have high expectations of yourself. You’re exhausted from constantly worrying about what other people think while simultaneously striving for their approval. You’ve risked it all, fallen flat, learned to fear failure, and chosen to shrink the scope of your life. But now you are ready to:

  • Own your voice + become the best version of you
  • Build a loving relationship with food + your body
  • Cultivate strong, connected + authentic relationships
  • Do tough but meaningful work

If you’ve journeyed to my corner of the big, beautiful world, it’s likely because you’re feeling uninspired, exhausted, or unworthy. Possibly all three.

But I can help you find your path back to your best self. I can teach you to dare greatly and recognize that you have enough and you are enough. I can show you how to make courageous choices at work and at home so you can begin building the life you truly want to live. Together we’ll unpack what’s holding you back and develop a customized plan for integrating your personal and professional life.

If chasing perfection and the anxiety of conforming are keeping you from being your authentic self, you are living someone else’s life. It’s time to live your own life.
