About Kristen

website-sample-2
I'm an energetic, optimistic, creative and results oriented individual who is naturally curious and loves connecting with people human-to-human. Watching people soar and experience personal transformation feeds my soul.

For more than a decade, I have helped executives and emerging leaders in hundreds of organizations worldwide achieve extraordinary and sustainable results through increased self-awareness, emotional intelligence and mindfulness.

In addition to being an in-demand speaker and facilitator, I'm also an accredited coach, empowering leaders to become more aware of their strengths, blind spots, values and purpose so they can build lives and organizations of success, sustainability and health. Nothing makes me happier than working with people in a coaching relationship and witnessing the powerful shifts that happen. My personal mission is to help leaders transform from the inside out, creating a meaningful career and purpose-driven life where they reach their full potential.

Through my journey of self-discovery I have developed a high level of intuition, radical candor and empathy which leads to powerful coaching sessions. I'm a compassionate coach who builds trust from a place of authenticity and creates a safe environment where clients feel heard and understood.

I'm a graduate of McMaster University, having attained my Honours Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Psychology. I did my coach training and certification through The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and I hold my CPCC & ACC designation through The International Coach Federation (ICF), considered the “gold standard” in global coaching certification. I'm also a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers (CAPS).

I host a bi-weekly podcast called Inspirational Leadership where I interview progressive CEO’s, strategic HR leaders and forward-thinking experts who share my passion for leadership development and creating positive work cultures.

On a personal note, I'm a big believer in compassion, authenticity and conscious leadership. I love spending time with my family and friends, practicing yoga and meditation, exploring new places and using my voice to make a positive impact in the world.
