A little more backstory ...

Karen’s path to consulting is a direct result of two inflection points: meeting Dr. Bob Moore (now her husband) and her deep seated commitment to working and living congruently . Dr. Bob founded Oneteam’s predecessor company, working in clinical, organization and sports psychology settings. One noteable highlight of his long and productive career is his position as coach for the U.S. skydiving team Airspeed and their 12 consecutive national and world championships. After a decade of co-leadership of Oneteam, Bob retired from corporate work to teach Tai Chi, and can often be found on the business end of a saltwater fishing pole.
