Embedded Ops

Looking for a virtual COO?

I relish being an integrated, strategic asset for select clients.

I can help you with:

  • strategic project management
  • operations management
  • hiring/managing contractors or staff
  • introducing new technology & procedures
  • standardizing business analytics
  • planning product launches and nurture funnels

I have a limited capacity to take on long-term clients, but this is the work I was born to do. I’m partial to businesses and teams that are really cool, really mission-focused, and/or really fun. I’d love to see if you and I are a good fit.

Karen is a trusted advisor and A-level executor in my business.

Karen is a trusted advisor and A-level executor in my business. She created the operational infrastructure that allowed our company to scale to 7-figures — reducing team burnout and overwhelm in the process.

Karen helped us run our launches more smoothly, as well as analyze the results to make better decisions for the future. She also overhauled internal systems and replaced them with stronger ones (from project management to technology to hiring processes), which positioned us for fast and sustainable growth.

Karen also works closely with me to create growth plans for my company. She grounds my high-level ideas and helps me turn them into reality!

I’m forever grateful to Karen for transforming our company — making it healthier, stronger, and more profitable!  Thank you Karen for helping us scale to 7-figures!


In summer 2018, I have space for another client. Please reach out to me if you'd like it to be you...

If you’ve been referred to me by someone, let me know that right up front. I’m delighted to work with friends of friends.

Karen is a strategic partner in my business.

As a service-based business owner, its challenging for me to work on client projects and still make time for opportunities and strategies that will grow my business. For the last 3+ years, Karen has been an integral part of my business growth by helping me create streamlined, repeatable processes for the services I provide. Our partnership allows me to scale without sacrificing my sanity.
Not only is she one of my most trusted business advisors, she’s an asset to Zenplicity clients because of her unique background and experience on the operational front too.  She helps me deliver better results for my clients and keeps us all on track for success. I simply couldn’t run my business without Karen – she’s my Smooth Biz Operator!
