I'M KRISTEN, A LOVER OF LIVING IN THE SLASHES.
I'M AN ENTREPRENEUR / DESIGNER / FACILITATOR / COACH / DANCER / ASPIRING BAKER.
I started my first business in college, flipping foreclosures during the economic recession in 2008. Quick success allowed me time to start two more small businesses in jewelry design and experience production while serving as the Executive Director of an award-winning, nonprofit dance company, Funkanometry.
Since then, I have led a variety of projects such as fundraising for a nutrition program for malnourished children, producing a private retreat for top women founders and investors in Silicon Valley, designing a Kickstarter-backed connection card game, and launching a Filipino food company called The Sarap Shop. In parallel, I grew a tech career holding roles at Stripe as Head of Design Operations, and at Google in operations, leadership development, and venture capital. I currently split my time between building The Sarap Shop, which just opened its second location in the new Golden State Warriors Chase Center Arena, and running a freelance business and relationship practice.
Relationships, design x business, and fun are my jam. If you're looking to explore ways to work smarter and play harder, let's chat.
