Nice to Meet You!


Hi, I’m Karen Friend Smith, a certified health coach & wellness advocate and this site is where you can quickly connect with me & my favorite things.


I’m a helper at heart. Ultimately, I love helping people make things happen & get things done.


Maybe you are:

  • Struggling to take good care of yourself
  • Convinced you should have more energy
  • Tired of feeling crappy
  • Bored with your food
  • Frustrated that your exercise program isn’t getting the results you want


These are all things I can totally help you with!


Through private coaching, small group programs and online courses, I can help you:

  • increase your energy
  • lose fat
  • gain strength
  • improve your health in a lasting way
  • without restrictions and complicated rules


Most importantly, I help my clients mend their relationship with food, while learning how to eat for both joy and results.


I am also the co-founder of The Kitchen Skinny – where we provide tools & resources for eating healthy, including: free online courses, tons of amazing recipes, and what I like to call ‘timebenders’ – things that save you time & money.


On a personal note, I have been married to my best friend for 25 years and have two beautiful adult daughters. I enjoy being active in my community and helping people make connections. I love working out, upbeat music and books that make you think. I thrive on problem-solving and rich conversations. And, I am not totally happy unless I am outdoors and am learning new things.


If you’re ready to make some changes in your life, let’s get to it! I’m ready to help.
