"I know that I was meant to struggle to appreciate the good and to feel the depths of feeling stuck in so many areas. I was meant to find a way, not wall up and help others.  Known of this was not my plan, because in so many ways I have had to fight my own scenarios on what is "normal". My gift is my journey, seeing other energies and using my skillsets to help. That is why I am here" - Kristy

"Ithaca College’s Women in Business Network was fortunate enough to listen to Kristy speak at the annual Harvard Intercollegiate Business Convention. Her presentation was both awe-inspiring and motivational. Kirsty brings so much positive energy to anyone she speaks with and is always willing to help regardless of who they are. It is clear that she is super passionate about anything she puts her mind to; she had us all wanting to start organizing our time with StartPlanner! Every member we brought was raving about Kristy's IBC talk and StartPlanner."

Kristy speaks truth into the lives of others while liberating them with tools that make them better. She is passionate about living an organized and intentional life and she is getting things done. I have had the privilege of hearing her speak to creatives and I have sat across the table from her, and listened to her dream. She is the real deal and I am proud of all that she is doing.
