Kristina led a custom workshop for a group of 60 healthcare workers at LinkedIn in New York and she was incredibly effective. She was able to instantly connect with the group she was speaking to and gave them concrete tools to combat burnout and practice self-care in what is an incredibly high-stress working environment. She was very easy to work with in the lead-up to the event. She was always prepared with great ideas and created a streamlined flow for the day. I’d highly recommend hiring Kristina to lead a workshop or coaching session in the future. She’s a deft facilitator and leaves a lasting impact on those with which she works. ~ Samantha Kelly, LinkedIn Community Builder
