True success is loving what you do.

It’s time to unleash your future.

I’ll help you define what you really love to do, and steer you onto the path to start doing it.



I know that life often leads us in directions we didn’t quite expect, and sometimes we need to redirect in order to light the path that taps into our heart. If you feel it’s time for a change, I’ll help you make the right one—whether it’s a change in career, going after that promotion, or a big idea you want to pursue. I’ll help you strike the perfect balance of what you want to do with the impact you want to have.

Before I started working with Kirsten, I felt like I was swimming in an ocean with no land in sight. Now I feel even more empowered, energized and totally out of the weeds.
— Dr. Susanne Cappendijk, CEO & Founder, EDsnaps
