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 women founders and investors, designing a Kickstarter-backed connection card game, and launching a Filipino food company. In parallel, I started a corporate career at Google where I held operating roles partnering with executives in Sales and Marketing.
Now I happily balance running the food business with work for GV (fka Google Ventures) as a design ops partner and coach.
Relationships, productivity, and fun are my jam. If you're looking to explore ways to work smarter and play harder, let's chat.
