Karen Barnes

Accountability Coach and Manager of Community Development

A Winston Salem native, Karen’s been an entrepreneur since grade school when she picked vegetables from her dad’s garden and sold them around the neighborhood from her red wagon. Prior to joining ActionCOACH, she founded both Agile City and Venture Café, making huge positive contribution to Winston-Salem and each individual she touched along the way.

When not working to help business owners and the community grow, Karen spends her time with her wife and dog doing what she loves...travel, drawing, reading, playing golf, hiking and of course eating cheese burgers!
