Karen M. Allen is a Mindset Expert, TEDx Speaker, and the founder of the 100% Human community. She is passionate about equipping individuals with the tools and resources to feel better, live better, and achieve their goals with a healthy mindset.


She empowers highly motivated individuals and business leaders to harness the power of their mindset and develop the self-awareness necessary to overcome challenges and achieve their full potential.


After the unexpected loss of her husband followed by years of transformational experiences, Karen reclaimed control of her fate by rediscovering and healing herself from the inside out. Since 2014, Karen has been studying the human mind, positive psychology, and post-traumatic growth. Combine this with her own experience and you have a trifecta that not many other speakers or coaches can offer.


Karen is the creator of the mental exercise: Stop + Shift. She developed this method to help people jumpstart their mental strength training. It's a simple, yet powerful, technique that teaches people how to let go of negative thought cycles and move to more productive and positive thinking.


Karen's client list includes Google, Experian, AT&T, Kaiser Permanente, Travelers Insurance, YouTube, WD-40, Raymond James & Associates, Women's Foodservice Forum, and many more! Her work has been featured in Forbes, SHRM Magazine, Good Morning America, MSNBC, and many others!

Karen received her undergraduate degree in Communication from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.


“Our associates loved hearing from Karen. Attendees felt that Karen had a great energy and that through that energy she was able to inspire them through various seasons in their own lives. They found her relatable, genuine, and engaging. We hold a speaker event every year and we had record attendance for Karen. Associates were also eager to receive her book. We had a great experience working with Karen this year and her Stop & Shift model fit our vision and message perfectly.”

Brieanne C., Raymond James & Associates


“Karen engaged our 300 virtual participants with authenticity, wisdom, and energy in a way that both kicked off our business meeting with energy while enabling our people to show up more fully in our small group discussions. Karen was a delight to work with and gave us confidence that we had a real partner in co-creating the experience envisioned for our people this year.”
