Dr Karen Weekes - Bio

Dr Karen Weekes is an adventurer, sports psychologist and University lecturer. In February 2022, she became the first Irish female, and 20th female worldwide, to row any ocean solo, successfully rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in 80 days. Working with teams and individuals, from elite and non elite backgrounds for thirty years, Karen specialises in proactive cognitive and practical coping strategies. Through her research she has explored motivation and coping within endurance environs, which are reflected in her shared experiences within sporting and corporate genres. Endurance exploits and music have been Karen’s lifetime passions. Journeys have included both water and land based adventures. A sample of these can be seen in the ‘Adventures’ tab.
