She is on trend, on time, and knows how to connect the dots at the highest levels right now. Kris has had a national impact and does so in a warm, direct, and incredibly accurate style. If you are looking to enhance your career brand or talk career strategy, I highly recommend reaching out to her at Professional Courage.”
