Karen is a Biomedical Engineer by education (to doctorate level) but a Personal Trainer, Gym Owner, and Nutrition Coach by trade. 

Karen is the face behind The Nut Coach and owner and head coach at PB Nutrition, where she adopts a strictly no nonsense, evidence based and “life is for living” based approach to both nutrition and training. 

She has been training with weights since 2011 and aspires to be an elite Masters Weightlifter over the coming years, having previously represented Ireland on the world stage as an Amateur Kettlebell Lifter.

When not coaching clients in her gym, FreedomFitness in Kilcoole, Karen can be found throwing weights around the gym, speaking at nutrition seminars around the country, or ranting about Fad Diets on Facebook.
