Rachel Karu’s purpose and passion for inspiring reflection and results led her to create Stepping into More – A personal development company dedicated to supporting clients with their quest to unleash their Purpose and Passion in order to lead a Fulfilling and Empowered Life!
Rachel primarily works with successful people who supposedly have it all and yet are feeling empty and burnt out. This is usually because they have spent many years supporting others either as a professional, spouse, parent, and /or friend and have lost connection with their purpose and passion.
Described by her clients as “a gifted coach, speaker, and facilitator who is both intuitive and pragmatic,” Rachel energizes her clients and creates an affirming environment for personal transformation.
She achieved her Coaching Credential through the International Coaching Federation and is a Certified Strengths Coach with the Marcus Buckingham Company. Rachel earned her Master’s in Counseling for Business, Industry, and Government. Rachel is President Elect for the International Coach Federation, Los Angeles.Clients include: Facebook, Intel, Cisco, EMC, Raytheon, United States Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Allergan, Philips, Braille Institute, Mattel, Viacom, and Disney/ABC Media.
Rachel’s personal journey as a Recovering Perfectionist inspired her to create Stepping into More. Rachel’s perfectionism paralyzed her from pursuing her passion for singing for over 20 years until a car accident changed everything.
This series of events led Rachel back into performing, publishing her autobiographical self-help book - Stepping Into More – Lessons from a Recovering Perfectionist (http://tinyurl.com/steppingintomore), and producing her CD of songs - Stepping Into More (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/rachelkaru).
Rachel is happily married for over 26 years and has two amazing children who continue to be her best teachers on a daily basis.
