The Wisdom Futurist:
An Oracle for Today and Tomorrow
A leading-edge futurist, educational gerontologist, strategic partner, world-class, high impact master coach, visionary game changer, firecracker keynoter & best-selling author, I boldly advocate for the new story of our AGE.
My mission is to make the future work by preparing you, your loved ones, your community, and your enterprises for an unfamiliar, always changing disruptive future—super charged by global megatrends with local impact, redefining our current VUCA times while future-casting our near and distant futures.
I’m an Ageless Visionary with Wrinkles who empowers people to rock their AGE.
I shine as an out-of-the-closet Transformational DisruptorSM offering professional executive-leadership development steeped in my Whole Brain Foresight™ and Continuous Quality Improvement models and Ageless Way™ principles to integrate into your personal life and into your enterprise(s) and systems.
But most of all, I care. I care about how we, as human beings, show up in the world—regardless of our age or gender or life so far. I care about those people who believe that it’s too late for them or that their time has passed. I care equally for our younger generations too distracted by VUCA Times to explore and prepare for their longevity as Super Agers. I care about the future of education, especially adult education and the import of life long and long life learning.
I care because I want to tell them the truth: that it is possible to rock your AGE at any stage in life, and that the future is 100% theirs for the taking.
With a focus on Shaping a new Story of our AGE in the marketplace, workspace & your space, I guide go-getters, conscious entrepreneurs, trailblazers and visionary leaders who are ready to shape the world and their role in it. Most especially women…and the men who love and encourage us to be our greatest rendition of ourselves.
The same men and women who worked to shatter the glass ceiling now seek to soar beyond the silver ceiling as they harness the Longevity Economy to realize their fullest potential, leaving a visionary legacy for generations to come. It’s time for you to rock your AGE!

As I am approaching the second half of my life, I am more and more interested in self-improvement and introspection. Karen provides a chance to reflect quietly but with an expert leading me through. The Ageless Way is an absolute must as a program for alumni, continuing education and graduate students.
Barbara Grummet - former Dean, Russell Sage Graduate School, currently, CUNY
Karen helped me to see myself as I truly am. A gifted, insightful, intuitive and very wise masterful coach, she has helped me design and install a wisdom chip that helps me be conscious about why I’m making decisions so I can align with what I want vs. going with what others expect. My professional leadership and communication skills have also been greatly enhanced by our work together. Karen doesn’t sugar coat the truth and she doesn’t let me off the hook, yet she makes me laugh! And she does this all by phone—without the benefit of visual cues! I think of Karen as “wisdom on call.”
