While doing work with young adolescent girls, Kris has seen magic happen when they unite and learn they are not alone.

Girls have a lot to say, but few chances to be heard and validated as they wrestle with their own thoughts and feelings versus the messages they receive of how things “should be”. Adolescence is a tricky age yet amazing time to initiate self development.  Kris believes we have an entry point with girls as they enter adolescence to make their brain grow with confidence and leadership through experiences and empowerment.  This magic that happens when you start to see girls get to normalize their adolescent experiences together is amazing and inspiring.  Having this growth alongside with their parents who are often so eager to understand their adolescent and have instructions to guide their kids leadership and self advocate skill set is a powerful combination.

Kris decided to leverage 15 plus years of experience of being a mom, a sports coach and life coach, psychotherapist, entrepreneur and seminar developer to focus on the growth of girls developing confidence and direction in such an opportune time of their lives.
