An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Karen Oeser, CFA, CFEI, CPFC

I bring over 25 years of direct business experience to my client relationships. Prior to launching my coaching practice, I managed over $150 million in fixed income assets for Hart Capital Management, Inc. I continue to apply my investing skills in commercial real estate as a passive investor in multifamily assets through my company East Light Investments. As a serial entrepreneur, I have launched and successfully sold several communications businesses, including a boutique investor relations company, Ripple Effect Communications, which continues to thrive as full-service public relations firm.

As a John Maxwell Team Certified Speaker, I am a frequent podcast guest and conference speaker. Topics include “The Law of Intentionality: Growth Doesn’t Just Happen”, “Clarity Leads to Freedom”, and “We All Have a Purpose.”

I am also passionate about financial literacy for women. I recently launched Financial Literacy for Her, a program created to help women overcome their fear of money and empower them to live in financial freedom. I specially designed FLH to be a safe place for women to be vulnerable and ask scary questions without judgement. As part of the program, each client is partnered with a knowledgeable coach to create a diversified wealth plan to help them realize their dreams.

In my capacity as a pastor and Licensed Minister of Dance, I work with families who have loved ones struggling with drug addiction, mental illness, and incarceration. In my free time, I love spending time with my teenage sons, being in the outdoors, traveling, and volunteering at my church.

Please feel free to reach out and contact me. I look forward to assisting you in your journey to becoming a successful leader.
