Professional Coach, Senior Faciliator, Organizational Development Consultant

Karen Davey-Winter is an ICF (International Coach Federation) credentialed Professional Coach (ACC level) with over 20 years of senior leadership experience in a variety of large and small organizations. Karen’s background includes senior positions at Kaiser Permanente in California and Maryland, where she was on the Leadership Team of a $5.2bn project to rollout the largest private electronic health record system in the world. She was also Practice Director for a nation-wide Consulting Company, responsible for building a pipeline of business and managing a profit and loss center. She has worked for a number of Federal Government Agencies and Biotech/ Pharmaceutical organizations in both consulting and executive coaching roles and is a senior coach at Avalon Foster. 

Karen’s background has given her a deep understanding of the complexities of large IT organizations, the challenges of matrixed environments and the pressure that large system and organizational changes exert on individuals, teams and organizations. She has always had a passion for building teams, training people and creating cross-functional collaboration to meet a common goal, and has built multi-national teams of over 150 people.

It was this passion that led her to transition her focus to coaching and organization development, and she combines her deep practitioner experience with her coaching and consulting skills to help individuals, teams and organizations stretch their potential and reach their goals.

Karen moved to the US from the UK more than 15 years ago, and she has also lived in Australia, Germany and Norway. As a result, she knows firsthand the complexities of living and working in different cultures and making the transition from one culture to another. She is passionate about helping global teams become more effective and helping individuals adapt to different cultures.

Karen received her Bachelor’s degree, with Honors, in the UK in Politics and Modern History, and has a post-graduate certificate in Organizational Consulting and Change Leadership from Georgetown University. She is certified in Myers Briggs, EQi (Emotional Quotient Inventory) and CWQ (Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire). She is a regular presenter at the Project Management Institute’s Washington DC Chapter. Karen lives in Kensington, MD, with her 12 year old son.
