I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE AT A FAST PACE
In my past 15-year successful career as a business leader, I acquired new professional skills and built a successful career in the IT industry as Software Development Engineer. I also gained experience in developing new business strategies and my own projects. I know firsthand what rush jobs, frequent business trips, and stressful deadlines are.
I have two children, and I know what it means to have enormous career demands while managing a «bad parent» syndrome.
Today I feel balanced, full of energy, and personally and business-wise fulfilled, having previously experienced chronic fatigue, burnout, poor communication with friends, and lack of “me” time.
I found my destiny, and now I am happy to share with others what I can do myself while building financial independence and stability without having to count on rich parents and start-up capital.
I helped dozens of people find inner harmony and that elusive life balance, helping them become successful Kings and Queens fully in charge of their lives who can and do give their love and attention to loved ones and to themselves.

COVID-19 created a forced pause that allowed Kristen to take the time and dig deep to find her next step on her career path and this is when coaching entered her life. She intuitively knew that this career would allow her to live into her purpose of helping others navigate finding their true self and creating a holistically balanced, values-driven life that they consciously choose to live every day.
Kristen’s vision for her coaching career is to impart a positive impact on humanity and raise the collective vibration by empowering each individual’s self-transformation, integration and alignment of body, mind and soul.

How you think will determine the success or failure in your life…..I have been known by the tagline of “Enlightening Minds” because I believe in Illumination of the Mind !!! We are an amazing species with the ability to think, imagine and create -that which we think about. Once we decide something, we change – Change isn’t hard for us !! We change all the time. Yet within organizations, we are thrown into horrible change management processes that go against the way we are designed to operate. When “LEADERS” drive change -Change is welcomed, Change is Celebrated, and Change is Anticipated -the operative word being LEADERS!!!. What an interesting concept – Leadership !!
This is the privilege of my life – to come alongside you as a leader and partner with you in creating change for your personal life and for the lives of those around you. So many times we settle for less than we could ever accomplish due to fear, fear of the unknown, fear of other people, fear of failure – the list goes on and on. But the biggest fear we should have is the fear of not becoming ALL we were meant to be.
