"Thank you for the wonderful experience you provided for the faculty, staff, students, and community guests at our first annual health market. The knowledge and personal experiences you shared helped our employees to reflect on their choices and behaviors and to consider how these things impact their quality of life.

"Loved your "balance" talk at the recent SHRM conference. It was the best one of the day!"
"I am someone who is interested in a million things, and is also recently married. The conversation around setting priorities for life really resonated with me."
I met Chris in 2009 when she had a speaking engagement with the Women’s Leadership Forum at my workplace. I loved her from the start; she exudes tremendous energy and positivity that is infectious. As a speaker, Chris is engaging and easily holds your attention throughout her presentations. Soon after, I hired Chris to be my Coach. Chris is very personable, has tremendous experience and professionalism, held me accountable, listened to what I had to share, and offered terrific guidance! Chris was able to help me see where I needed to make improvements in my life/career to make a positive difference in my life.

"Great job at the SHRM conference, you really hit the nail on the head with all the stressors we have in our lives, we really do need to take stock of our priorities....we just need to have businesses buy into this as well."
