Hi, I'm Kristin, consider me your

Career Fairy Godmother

"What is wrong with me?" used to be the question I would play on repeat.

I had a lovely marriage, dear children, fun friends, a strong family life and yet....I was not fulfilled. And, changing jobs every two to three years was not solving my problem.  Why can't I just be content with what I have and not seek more? I kept thinking if only my town were different, or my husband were different, or the job market were different, or our finances were different then I wouldn't feel this way. All excuses, but I didn't know that. I created unnecessary overwhelm and convinced myself I was being greedy to want more. But, the feelings of frustration were loud and led to a puzzling combination of action and inaction. I began engaging less with those around me. Sleeping more. Eating more. Drinking more. And running in circles to solve for feeling, in a word...  stuck. 

I found coaching. And, coaching was the game changer.

 

I stopped leaning on changing anything outside of me to get unstuck. I learned that I alone could create better, fulfilled, happy, content and still want more. And that was okay. I also realized it was safe to want more and be more. But this time when I "wanted more" it was to add to my life, not to solve for anything lacking. I had found the short cut to getting unstuck. I retold my stories. Wrote new stories. And finally got honest with what I most wanted - fulfilling work that I designed from scratch and a robust personal life. And, my coach showed me just how I could do both to create my own happiness and fulfillment. I'm forever indebted to her. 

Receiving coaching was so powerful that

I decided to become a coach

Now, I bring all I have learned to every interaction with a client. My finely tuned intuition, ability to hear what you are not saying, natural gift for enthusiasm and encouragement, and my sincere love for each woman with whom I work. Everything I have ever done, learned, experienced shows up in my work with you.
