Kristie comes with 20 years of past experience in marketing and communications for a multi-billion dollar corporation, so she knows a thing or three about creating teams that crush goals, retaining loyal clients and attracting (and keeping) the best talent. Her clients have built thriving companies, won leadership awards, been promoted (several levels), designed passionate team culture and attracted more profitable business.
Kristie has spoken to thousands on stages across the country including international associations and Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies. Her claim to fame is a seemingly never-ending (mostly non-caffeinated) supply of energy because fun is the name of her game.
When she’s not conducting leadership retreats or helping clients create a purpose-filled leadership life, she’s training for her next race, traveling the world or playing with her Ibizan Hound.
Kristie is especially passionate about working with professionals in the accounting and tech industries.
Business trends have shown people in these fields get all the technical skills training, but don’t gain the crucial leadership-ready guidance like those in other fields. She understands what these high-achievers need and knows how to transform them into the confident leaders they want to be. Her program framework and proven techniques have helped these professionals world-wide successfully step up their leadership prowess.

Everyone has a story. But stories with valuable experiences and first-hand knowledge are the ones that can change lives and the world.
Here’s Kristie’s story in her own words:
“I’ve been a pretty driven person since the first grade. I literally freaked out if I didn’t get an ‘A’ on something. I graduated in the top 4% of my high school, awarded summa cum laude for my associate’s degree and then cum laude for my bachelor’s. I served in nearly every top leadership role imaginable in my school career and while in my sophomore year, even coached other students on improving their speaking and leadership skills. When I started working for a multi-billion dollar company, I already planned how I’d move up the leadership ladder. Plus I ran my own marketing business from home, so I was set!”
Or so I thought.
While I excelled in corporate communications, leading teams and creating happy clients, I got too busy with “all the things” and burned out quickly. I wasn’t connecting with my true love of coaching and speaking, so it took a toll on my mindset, energy and motivation. Eager to change, I mentored under multi-millionaires, international speakers, entrepreneurs, authors and everyone in between.
Then I became a mentor.
I reimagined what it really took to level up in leadership and taught these concepts to other driven professionals. I realized when you focus your personal and professional sides into a passionate purpose, you win. Every time. Time management, goals, confidence, motivation, productivity, leadership skills — everything comes easier.
I outgrew my corporate job, shifted my marketing business to a high-performance & leadership boosting company and never looked back. I became dedicated to helping high-achievers like you reimagine their leadership journey.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you became that next-level leader without the baggage of drama, burnout and stress? And wouldn’t it be fantastic if you had teams of these purpose-driven, compassionate and confident leaders working in your organization?
That’s what I’m here for.
To this day, I’m still the driven first-grader from back when. I’m dedicated to helping you and your team members step up into a level of leadership that’s not only efficient and productive, but lights a fire in you to become what you’re truly meant to be.
Let’s do this!
