Creating empathetic spaces for people to grow.
I am a collaborator and co-conspirator who supports individuals and organizations in moving from where they are to where they want to be. Through coaching, training, speaking, and qualitative data collection, I use the neuroscience of empathy and connection to rebuild and repair cultures to foster inclusion, equity, and spaces that honor diversity.
My clients have ranged from large, urban school districts to small, rural non-profits. I have thought partnered with founders bringing a vision of a new organization to life and individuals at the precipice of major life changes. In every collaboration, it is positive psychology and the science of empathy that enables clients to build a vision for themselves and their organizations that transcends what they imagined.
Let's talk about how to put the evolutionary power of empathy to work for you.
"Kristin is a superstar. She is able to quickly synthesize a lot of complex and scattered data and viewpoints into a workable action plan. Her ability to strategize and help our organization compose processes to help achieve our goal has been instrumental."
COO, KidsFirst Chicago
"Kristin is highly knowledgeable and unafraid to have necessary conversations to help to move an organization forward. She is one of the few people that I would recommend without reservation if you need support to grow the health of your organization."

"Kristin was an indispensible coach and collaborator for me. She has an impressive set of tools that help groups develop, communicate and reflect on ideas together. Her attention to details and her ability to deliver on action items in a timely manner are second to none. She is world class at what she does."

"Kristin listens deeply to your needs and goals then supports you, as the leader, to create a plan that will take you step by step toward meeting your goals and addressing your needs. Kristin shifts gears to meet you where you are and ensure forward progress. Kristin is a joy to work with and makes you feel that she is as invested in your success as you are."

"As a new leader, I had the pleasure of working closely with Kristin during both the planning and launch of a new school. Kristin provided me with high-quality leadership coaching that supported me in the development of systems and structures aimed at helping us to meet our school's goals. As a result of our work with her, our school experienced a smooth and successful launch and first year.
