Coaching is a one-on-one relationship in which I am able to dive deep into the lives of my clients and assist them in making decisions that will help them reach their goals.

Kristen is passionate about having a positive impact on people's lives. For her, this means helping others build efficiencies to be more effective. By creating and using great systems, she believes that people can easily navigate situations and make good decisions. The most rewarding aspect of coaching is getting people to the point where they feel fulfilled because they've prioritized the (self-identified) right things in life.

Kristen had over 15 years of sales management experience before joining Building Champions in 2005. She was a top producer at one of the nation's largest retail mortgage lenders and a sales manager for Banc One Securities, where she was nationally recognized for her performance and ability to lead and develop high-performing teams.

While attending Georgia Southern University, Kristen earned her Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences. As a Building Champions Coach for over nine years, Kristen has helped top executives, small business owners and sales professionals achieve success in business and life. With her results orientated nature and knack for finding gaps, Kristen specializes in helping clients protect their days through effective priority management systems that achieve results.

Kristen lives in St. Louis, Mo. with her husband, Dan, his three kids and their daughter. She's a big reader who enjoys good food, socializing with friends, traveling and watching Denver Broncos football. Writing is one of Kristen's greatest joys and you can find her blog, Reflections of a Coach.
