Hello, My Name is


Karen Keskinen

I am a professional life coach working internationally, 

with students, their families and executives alike.


  • International Coaching Certification

  • Instructor Carleton University, University of Ottawa

  • International Association of Business Communicators


With over 20 years of corporate sector experience, I have experienced profound changes in balancing professional, personal and family life. As a Life Coach, Educational Learning Strategist and International Mentor, I help my clients transform and rebuild in the face of uncertainty and life changes, especially when decisions can be the hardest to make alone.


As a marketing and branding expert, and Communications and Public Relations professor at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, I offer excellent coaching  and guidance to students and professionals looking to reinvent themselves, and to those families who are at the threshold of change such as divorce, university, living in a new country, educational strategies and immigration advocacy.

"In the face of change and uncertainty, a therapist may be of great support, but coaching can help access one's own decision-making with confidence and empowerment to transform your life. Creating and reinventing ourselves does not require a medical practitioner - just a good coach that helps you help yourself."



Commercial Real Estate Developer

"This was the best decision I ever made. Karen offered on call and ongoing individual coaching and public speaking sessions in and out of our office."


Managing Editor

"Working with Karen as a coach helped me establish the confidence required for the Canadian workforce. Karen coached me through all of my concerns, big or small, and guided me as I made the transition into an established job after university. As an international student graduate, I shook away my uncertainties and unlocked my leadership potential - and I couldn't have done it without her support!"
