How you will benefit from coaching:

What I've realized through my own 15+ years in corporate and over a decade of coaching high achievers - especially coming off the past few years - is that the skills, habits, and ways of being that led to this level of success are oftentimes the very things preventing leaders from thriving in their roles and/or getting to the next step.

And in this ever-changing, highly competitive, and super volatile corporate environment, it's more important than ever to master the tools of authentic leadership, emotional intelligence, self-leadership, executive presence, personal branding, and an unwavering confidence + trust in self.

My executive coaching clients have:

  • Landed the promotion (even after several years of being passed over)
  • Changed careers while maintaining the same (or better!) title and compensation
  • Broken into the C-Suite, negotiated the highest compensation packages of their careers
  • Regained their mental health and found more balance, while continuing to thrive at work
  • Gained confidence in their leadership and mentorship abilities, no longer shying away from difficult conversations
  • Bounced back from layoffs with even more aligned roles, companies, and benefit packages
  • Built a strong executive presence, earning the respect from colleagues and top leadership
  • Developed an unwavering confidence in self, leading to more influence and impact at work (and at home!)

Next Steps

I offer a free consultation to get to know you, your needs, and your short and long-term career goals. Based on our conversation, I will recommend a custom solution for you.

I leverage my personal experience in corporate roles (15+ years across investment banking, financial consulting and marketing + strategy for Fortune 500 brands), 10 years in coaching high performers, as well as my continued trainings and certifications in trauma-informed life coaching, breath work facilitation and somatic work to bring a holistic approach to our work together, for maximum results.


Financial Executive

Kristen always brings her best to any and all interacts. She provides you with great insights and makes you think outside of your normal perimeters. The ability to just sit and throw ideas back and forth helps to get you aligned to what you truly desire, but at the same time she does not let you get too far out in front of your skis. She has an interesting mix of practical but yet strategic direction which will help you through difficult times and ensure that you are firmly planted in your greatest opportunities.

Kristen is fantastic. Her program is thorough, well paced, and ever evolving. She is so in tune with each of her clients, you would think you were her only client. If you are wondering if you are worth the investment, wonder no more! 


Senior Sales + Marketing Leader and Business Owner

Kristen has been an inspiration! Her program helped me get the job I wanted then, but it also helped me re-discover what brings passion into my life. I am now following my dream and working on accomplishing it! Without Kristen's help, I'm not sure where I'd be. She's a fantastic coach with an incomparable energy that will always remind you that you can accomplish anything you set your heart to.


Director of Development for Conservation Voters of PA

I can’t recommend Kristen enough! She has an ability to think through things in a strategic and unique way. We made such amazing strides in our time together. I couldn't have taken the next step in my career without Kristen's coaching. In just a few sessions she helped me find my passion, visualize my path forward and begin progressing on that path. She's truly a blessing to those looking to find joy in what they do. I've never been happier in my career!


Business Owner and Former Prison Warden

Coaching with Kristen has taken me from a soul sucking job to a place where I wake up each day with a smile on my face and an entirely different way of living. I have no doubt that I would still be stuck in the never ending hustle of the daily grind had it not been for our work together. I highly recommend coaching with Kristen. She’s one of a kind.

Chief Pilot and Airline Executive

Kristen is spot on in her guidance to those looking to find a new job whether it is a career shift, deal with a layoff or RIF or if you are simply tired of where you are and want a change. I have worked with Kristen for close to a year, suffered a layoff due to a restructuring and my position being eliminated about 6 months ago and just landed a dream job! Her guidance helped me tremendously along the way! Kristen’s 1:1 sessions are extremely helpful! She doesn’t provide you with false BS, but keeps it real, wants to hear your positive as well as your struggles she knows you are having. She is extremely uplifting!! Thank you Kristen!!
