What my clients say

Before I started working with Kirsten, I had the challenge of designing a fundraising strategy for my new organization, EDsnaps. I felt like I was swimming in an ocean with no land in sight.

Since working with Kirsten, I not only have a better understanding of how to fundraise for EDsnaps, I also have a better understanding of positioning EDsnaps in the non-profit sector.

As a result of my work with Kirsten, I feel even more empowered, energized and totally out of the weeds.

CEO & Founder, EDsnaps

We both feel very strongly about the give back portion of our business but months into the launch of our company we kept pushing it to the side for other initiatives as we grow the business.

The challenge of moving the give back part of our business forward has been very frustrating and left us feeling like we are not doing an important piece of the company.

After working with Kirsten, we felt more focused and purposeful. We know that we will be able to easily determine which charitable organization best fits with Kinona as a brand, as a personal extension of ourselves, and as something we can embed in our company culture.

-Dianne & Tami, Founders and Changemakers, Kinona


Don’t look back in ten years and wish you had done something. Whether you have a nagging feeling that won’t go away that it’s time for you to give back, or you know exactly what you want to do to make a difference, Kirsten will help you make the change you want in your life and in the world.

— Elizabeth Y., Financial Advisor

I felt stuck in a planning stage because I was nervous about taking the next steps to put my ideas into action. After working with Kirsten, I felt a major shift in my mindset and how I thought about the program. Kirsten helped me to visualize the effect this program will have on girls and how critical this work is.  I feel more confident and better equipped to take STEM Like A Girl to the next level and start impacting girls and excite them about science and engineering!

— Sarah F., Founder, STEM Like a Girl

What an eye and heart opening experience working with Kirsten has been! I started this program when all my children were leaving the nest. I wanted to find a way to help others that would add purpose to my life and career.  With Kirsten’s guidance, I was able to discover a path forward.

"I don't just promote giving back, I help people become changemakers. The distinction is that when they give back, they have an impact, of course, but when they create change, they can transform their communities. And it doesn't have to take a ton more of their time, but it's a different type of focus and effort that can make even greater life changing impact."
