Dr. Kristina is passionate about ensuring people understand their reason for living and the "why" behind their God-given gifts for activating a life of purpose and destiny.
Kristina’s life passion is to help people walk fully into their purpose, so their gifts and talents can bring healing to self and others. Kristina is an inspirational speaker, bestselling author, educator, ordained minister and wife to her wonderful husband, Eddie, as well as mother to her three beautiful children, Kiersten, Kristopher and Kaleb.
Kristina received a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership at Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri. Kristina loves life, and enjoys encouraging others and helping them overcome any fears, doubts, or the “cant’s” and “no’s” from the past, present or future that have served as a hindrance to their purpose and destiny.
Kristina began researching purpose shortly after her daughter, Kiersten, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She was heartbroken, lost and confused, but able to find hope through educating others on special needs and not allowing circumstances to deter the greatness that was waiting to be released from within her. Through a great support system of family and friends, Kristina was able to claim her ultimate purpose. Now, her life’s purpose is to do the same for others. She defines purpose as the reason why we were created and encourages people of all walks of life to tap into this great gift and utilize for self, but most importantly to help others.
Kristina now speaks to others about purpose and learning the power of positive thinking in difficult situations. She plans to continue to encourage people worldwide through her books and speaking platform in hopes of building a worldwide support group for those who are fighting to reach their ultimate purpose in life.
