Danielle Mall Colan

Karen Burgard

Wellness Coach

Karen is an alum of the College of Lake County’s Health and Wellness Coaching Certification Program.
Wellness coaching is all about YOU and puts you at the center of your journey to the life you’ve always wanted. We work together to co-create a vision and supporting goals that highlight your strengths.
As a board certified health and wellness coach, I can offer you guidance, support, accountability, a fresh perspective, and the encouragement you need to make lasting lifestyle changes. Working with me as a coach gives you someone to lean on when change seems impossible or motivation is lacking. We will create space for you to explore the best version of yourself, dream, and have an ally along the way. My approach is rooted in a holistic coaching philosophy that begins by recognizing the wholeness of each person.

If change was easy we wouldn’t have to work at it.  

Work with me and together we will turn your strengths into lasting change and your dreams into reality.
