Kristina’s insights have had a huge impact on my career and my self-confidence. She planted this seed of truth in me that I knew I had to start tending to, and as a result I found my voice and am now on a path to leadership in my field. I am very grateful for her advice and so glad we crossed paths.

I gained valuable tools and productive habits from this experience. More importantly, I gained CLARITY as a result of “doing the work” that Kristina recommended. She was easy to talk to (down-to-earth), encouraging and intuitive. She did a great job at helping me identify which obstacles stood in the way, what needed shifting, what didn’t, and how to “get to the core” or the root of the problem...I wholeheartedly recommend her!

Kristina is an amazing coach and mentor...I’m always impressed by her intuitive nature, creative ideas, and insight to tap into the core. She is tremendously gifted and has the ability to unblock obstacles that perhaps we didn’t even know existed, as it’s sometimes most challenging to see situations clearly when you’re immersed in them.
