Hi! I'm Kirsten Bunch.

I work with successful women who are curious about how they can use their next act to give back but aren’t sure what to do or how to do it.

My goal is to help you help more people through your own business, nonprofit or community initiative. 

My new book is coming in August!

How I can help you 


What my clients say

Before I started working with Kirsten, I felt like I was swimming in an ocean with no land in sight.

As a result of my work with Kirsten, I feel even more empowered, energized and totally out of the weeds.  
— -Dr. Susanne Cappendijk, PhD, MBA CEO & Founder, EDsnaps

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 our 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, Kinona Sports

For a year I tooled around with an idea to spark a movement of people capable of standing up to hate in America—but I hesitated to leave the security of a position that had grown too small for me.  
In order for me to make the leap to launch the transformative change I believed needed to happen in this world, I was going to have to change the way I saw myself. I was going to have to stretch out of my comfort zone and use my own voice. But my fears stopped me from quitting my job and striking out on my own.
Kirsten helped me to tackle the really practical problems that posed as the kryptonite to my vision. She gave me concrete examples of how to earn money that helped me see how making the leap made sense. Working with Kirsten, I had the dedicated time and space to redirect my mojo and to use my voice to accomplish the change I wanted to see happen in the world.
Today, I have left the job that was too small for me; set up a consulting business and I signed my first client to generate money; and I’ve put together the 3-year action plan to spark a movement of people to stand up to hate and am in process of filing all the paperwork to make this vision an official organization.

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!

"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."
