I blend my passion for coaching with my practical experience as a sales manager to help individuals, sales teams, and small businesses to unlock their potential and achieve their desired results. I build and perfect sales processes, coach in sales strategy and leadership, and deliver compelling and actionable workshops. Why? Because I care about my clients. I will give my everything so that they can thrive.

 

Arrive as a leader.

Thrive as a business.

Rise as a team.


  • Kristen's coaching was instrumental in preparing me for sales leadership. A master strategist, she possesses the uncommon ability to always be thinking 'biggest picture possible,' and has an incredible track record of success. I highly recommend Kristen.

  • "Your Best You" really inspired me to be introspective. As a result of attending Kristen's workshop, I am practicing the steps needed to strengthen my leadership and to improve both my personal and professional well-being.

  • When I started working with Kristen, I was not in a healthy place professionally and did not possess the strategies to 'right the course.' Kristen helped me see the inherent problems with my work-life balance, but more importantly, she taught me that I matter...that my happiness matters...and that those things directly impact my success at work. Working with Kristen helped me get to a much better place and helped me to reconnect with my 'why.'

  • Kristen's coaching was instrumental for me during the early stages of my sales and business career. Through working with Kristen, I improved my strategic communication skills, which led to stronger customer relationships. She was also formative in the development of my business acumen. Kristen's guidance leads to actions which lead to results. As a sales rep, in my first year of working with Kristen, I increased sales by 34%.

  • Kristen is fantastic to work with and really knows her stuff! When I first engaged with Kristen, my business had been growing through existing customer referrals and I really had no concept of sales as a process. Kristen's guidance enabled me to be much more strategic about prospecting, qualifying, and closing business. During the first couple of meetings, we dove into the sales basics, configured my CRM, and set sales-specific goals. We are now growing through multiple channels and are expanding our support staff. We doubled our sales volume in 2018. None of this growth would've been possible without the training that Kristen provided. Kristen quickly and easily assesses the sales function and begins suggesting practical solutions to take the business to the next level. She was well worth the investment and I highly recommend her!

  • Kristen's "Your Best You" workshop was fabulous! It was powerful, engaging, action-provoking and generated lots of great conversation long after the fact.

  • Kristen's consultation with us has had a marked impact on our franchising sales activities. She opened our eyes to deficiencies in our process that went well beyond what someone might deem as 'sales.' It was truly a holistic approach to sales improvement and we're definitely reaping the benefits.
    — FRANK AGIN, PRESIDENT, AMSPIRIT BUSINESS CONNECTIONS
  • Kristen is an amazing leader and a gifted manager. As a former direct report, she taught me all of the fundamentals I needed to build a successful career. She understands how to get the best out of people and get results. Working with Kristen inspired me to also become a manager and I have since built my own top performing team.
    — MATTHEW PASTIER, DISTRICT SALES MANAGER, MCGRAW-HILL EDUCATION
  • Kristen's consulting has been of tremendous benefit to Dismas Distribution Services. She has been a tremendous asset to our sales function and has implemented a very effective sales process for our team. She is very strategic, detail-oriented, and she sets clear expectations and goals. Kristen has also played an instrumental role in our strategic planning process for this year. With her direction, our strategic planning has tied sales, finance, and production together seamlessly. In 2019, our sales are up 50% over last year.
    — BOB PARSONS, CEO, DISMAS DISTRIBUTION SERVICES
  • For over a decade I witnessed, first hand, how to successfully build and lead a team. Learning from Kristen allowed me to achieve much success in my own career. Her leadership, teaching, and sales skills are second to none.
    — DAVID KURZAWA, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF PARTNERSHIPS, KNEWTON
  • Kristen's coaching was invaluable to me during my career transition. She inspired me to look harder inside myself and open myself to greater possibilities, in part through giving me assignments that helped me focus on what was most important and meaningful. I also experienced Kristen's leadership, as she managed me in a previous role. As a manager, she kept things in perspective and allowed for a healthy work-life balance. Kristen really knows how to build a strong sales team. She created a culture of trust, collaboration, and fun, which resulted in stellar team performances.
