Karen Shorey is the President of LMI Central IL and Slight Edge Coaching. She has over 25 years of leadership experience and is nationally certified with LMI. Her enthusiasm for mentoring and developing leaders is evident to all she works with.
Karen was born in Connecticut, raised in Maine and even lived in Canada for 10 years. In 2011, she was introduced to LMI while living in Canada. Through that process she found her passion facilitating and developing leaders to their full potential. In 2016, after moving back to the US, she became a partner with LMI and formed her own company, LMI-Central IL.
Karen and her husband Darin have 3 daughters and an adorable dog named Piper. She loves volunteering with women in her church and leads a small group in a Celebrate Recovery program in her community.
Robyn Cook is a facilitator and business coach with LMI Central IL. She has over 25 years of leadership and experience as a business owner. Her focus is on collaborating with small business owners and mentoring them to succeed.
She was born and raised in St Louis MO. After graduating from college, she served in the United States Air Force as a personnel officer and ROTC instructor. She transitioned to the business world as a director of operations with ARAMARK and district manager for H&R Block before owning her own H&R Block franchise. In 2018, she was introduced to Karen at a networking group and became friends. When Robyn decided to take her business in a new direction, she found that LMI was a natural progression for what she was most passionate; developing and mentoring small business owners. In 2019, Robyn partnered with Karen in her LMI business.
