Named a top 20 trailblazer by Meetings Today magazine, Kristen is an action-focused speaker who uses her world-class industry expertise and research into human behavior to motivate exceptional business leaders to elevate their brand and skyrocket their performance for maximum impact on results even during change and stress.
Clients include General Mills, Cargill, Retail Value Chain Federation, Minnesota Vikings, Women Presidents Organization, Rodan+Fields, and Boston Scientific. She has shared her Master’s-level expertise and bestselling books extensively on respected media outlets like Forbes, Fox, BBC, Psychology Today, and many more.
Her biggest faults – she is an occasional know-it- all, sometimes workaholic, and frequent wine aficionado; and her biggest love is her genetically sassy daughter Brooke. Kristen lives in Minneapolis and spends her free time boating, hiking, and traveling - especially when the snow flies.
“The commitment to drive yourself forward even when things suck a little (or a lot) is the ultimate definition of self-leadership.”
