Hi, I’m Karleen!
I’m the woman behind the Living Your Best Life community. I am a health, wellness and lifestyle coach and Independent Arbonne Consultant.
I am a Colorado Native and chose to stay in Colorado to pursue my degree in Exercise and Sport Science at Colorado State University (Go Rams!). I also have an associates degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant. I am blessed to live in a state that offers so many opportunities for recreation, adventure and healthy living. I have been happily married for 26 years, we have 2 adult children and a dog named Shasta. We recently became empty nesters when my youngest left for college!
To me, living your best life means finding what makes your heart beat faster and seeking to create more of that in your life. It means living a full and thriving life, a life of possibility and hope, not just a life of survival. It is about creating health, wellness and a lifestyle that will give you quality of life, not just quantity. I began my career working in Physical Therapy helping my clients to achieve greater quality of life after an injury, operation or medical emergency (such as a stroke). I was able to stay home to raise my kids when they were young and volunteered with MOPS International (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) where I was able to encourage, support and empower new moms of all ages and backgrounds. Motherhood can be challenging and I enjoyed seeing moms thrive in their new role. For the past 13 years I’ve empowered children and adults alike through teaching and training in the Martial Arts. This training is not only great exercise, but also works on increasing confidence and self-esteem, as well as teaching tools to physically protect yourself and your family and creating a positive, supportive environment where people can (you guessed it) THRIVE!
