About LifeSpark

Meet Kristie

The heart of my work is this: I love helping people become their best selves.

I have coached countless corporate executives, individuals, couples, and corporate teams, but will say that seeing lives be completely transformed still never gets old.  

My own life transformation began in a hospital bed during my third pregnancy. In this extended life-or-death period while confined to a bed, in labor for 40 days, and wondering if my baby and I were going to make it out of there alive, I began to question everything I’d ever thought was real and true.

I asked and pondered the hard questions: What is the purpose of my life? How did this happen to me? What needs to change?

What I did know?  I could not go back to living my life the same way. It was at this critical point in my life that I first discovered the Enneagram.

From that time, I became certified in the iEQ9. And coupled with my diverse background as lawyer, business leader, spiritual director and mother, I began my incredible journey as a coach.

I believe there is a transformation waiting for you, too. And I look forward to guiding you through it.


Your brain is a complex mechanical organ calculating between 2,500 and 3,300 thoughts an hour! And, 80% are negative, 95% repetitive. You can imagine the powerful implications this has on our lives. Learning how you think, consciously and subconsciously, and becoming aware of how your thoughts affect your experiences, may be the most important thing you could ever do for yourself.

The Enneagram

The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes a person’s patterns in how they uniquely conceptualize and navigate the world. This ancient tool categorizes humans into nine “types” based on several key variables. Every client takes the data-driven iEQ9 assessment and receives an analytical report after taking the online test. Together, we work through the report, creating a new awareness of the (often unconscious) core motivations that drive everything in your life. 


What makes me different from a typical coach is my training as a spiritual director in the practice of listening carefully and contemplatively. This allows me to sit with my clients and create a safe place where they can explore themselves at a pace with which they are comfortable. Some call this approach mindfulness or presence-based listening.
