"Making unshakable personal connections through story and active presence is something that Kristie has mastered. At the same time, her business acumen both as a dynamo in organizational settings, and as a socialpreneur is as authentic as it comes. She's been in the trenches. Kristie's perceptive abilities help her to accompany her clients through self-discovery and infuse their natural tendencies for intensity in specific areas for the betterment of the world.

Kristie's coaching is a very real and relatable experience from the outset. Be prepared to be humbled by a deeper sense of worth through stories of the human experience. In the sheer nature of conversation, you will likely start comparing your story with raw global issues that Kristie encounters in her non-profit work: great medicine."

“During my current career at Microsoft, I had the opportunity and privilege to meet with many great trainers, lecturers and coaches. When I joined MS ExPo program, I was very much looking forward to new experiences from upcoming coaching relationships.

What I really like and respect about Kristie, besides her high level of professionalism and extensive experience/knowledge, is her pristine human approach and great ability to put things in the right perspective. She managed to build very high level of trust immediately which of course is the main necessity for any successful coaching relationship.

Through our conversations, I learned a lot from Kristie, but most of all, she helped me a lot to learn from myself and about myself.”
