Karen Kelloway is passionate about helping others create a career they truly enjoy
Karen’s strength as a coach is instilling a sense of logic into big picture goals that help individuals focus and move forward to achieve meaningful results. Her career advancement book, NAIL IT! Six Steps to Transform Your Career, has been called “insightful and utterly enjoyable” by the Globe and Mail. NAIL IT!® is now a trademarked coaching program and workshop series.
Karen believes everyone needs a creative outlet. Along with writing career advice, Karen also found a home in writing fiction.

It was chosen as the grade five pick for 2012/13 small group instruction in Nova Scotia schools. Karen is in the process of writing several more novels. See the People of the Community article for more on Karen’s combined passions of writing, coaching and kids.
