“I can recall moments as early as grade school that highlight my propensity to move beyond surface solutions and to dive into the deep work of innovation and transformation. In countless scenarios, I have found that this approach results in momentum and energy that yield success, both personally and professionally.”

Krista’s ‘Go To’ Mantras


You are important and powerful.


We are interconnected and become better together.


Head, heart, and spirit work best in harmony and each need cultivated.


What you think, you become.


Focus on who you are (being) as much as what you accomplish (doing).


Take the next step. No matter how big or small, action builds momentum.

The sequoia redwood offers a powerful lesson about growth and interconnectedness. Did you know that this regal tree can grow to be 350 feet tall, yet only has a root system that goes 10 feet deep? The genius of this tree is that it exists in groves where although its roots are shallow, they are wide reaching and intertwined with the root systems of fellow redwoods. This interconnection provides tremendous support that enables each tree to withstand the forces of nature – raging floods or high winds. What a lesson for us as we navigate the gale winds and floods of life!
