Karen’s philosophy is much more unique than many fitness enthusiasts out there. Karen knows how to balance life and fitness.

She is a firm believer in living life to it’s fullest because life is just too darn short. As she would say…….”YEEHAW BABY”!
Remember…….”No Excuses and that’s No Mullarkey”!
I tried my best to make a living in the small mountain town of Salida, CO but I was forced to move to a larger city to begin a career, which is why I ended up in Scottsdale, AZ. I joined a gym and picked up where I had left off with weight training. It was in July of 2004 that I decided to compete in my very 1st figure competition. Little did I know that my life and physique were about to change.
Second, my focus has changed from competing to modeling and writing. I truly enjoy the challenge of staying in shape year round for photo shoots. I also love being creative at shoots and figuring out how to get the images published. One of the creative ways for me to get published was to get back in touch with my love for writing. I figured I am blogging about fitness so why not turn those blogs into articles and get them published? I am now a contributing writer for several publications around the world from the United States to the Middle East! Who would have thought a Kentucky gal would be writing for fitness publications around the world?
I made my WBFF debut in August of 2011 at the World’s Championship in Ontario, Canada, while battling a stress fracture to my right foot. Changing my training was quit the learning experience, but I leaned out just fine for the show considering having a sesamoid fracture. I competed in my final competition back in August of 2013 at the WBFF World’s in Las Vegas. After a ten year run, retirement is what this gal needed:) I am now off to doing bigger and better things…….YEEHAW!
I am also a huge fan of snowboarding. I learned about 15 years ago when I lived in Colorado. Once I learned, I was hooked! There is nothing better than making turns on a sunny powder day. If I could snowboard everyday, I would. It is not only great exercise, but is also a wonderful activity you can do during the winter. I don’t mind the snow as long as I can play in it!
I am also a boat owner and love getting relief from a hot summer day in Arizona by getting out on the water. I love getting a break from the gym and getting my workout on the water. I am an avid water skier, wake boarder and knee boarder. I also love taking my clients out on “No Mullarkey” so they can get their workouts in on the water. It is my way of showing how much I appreciate their hard work and to thank them for believing in their coach.
Lastly, I love to travel! I wish we had time to travel more, but I do my best to get away even if it is just for a long weekend. Being half Italian and half Irish, I can’t wait to travel to Europe. There are so many gorgeous places to see on this earth and way too little time. I also hope to make it “Down Under” and visit Australia someday in the near future. If I had it my way, I would visit a new country every year. My top 5 places to visit are: 1. Ireland (Home of the “No Mullarkey’s”), 2. Italy, 3. Australia, 4. France ,5. Switzerland
