What has Kristene been up to?


It's been a busy time! In December, 2017 I was given the opportunity to reach not just dozens or hundreds of families, but thousands. How? By partnering with a parent education media company with big dreams and an almost identical mission--ParentLab. I have moved on from the early days as a consulting expert into the role of Director of Education. Having the fortune to work with an international team dedicated to helping parents understand and connect with their children has helped me to be a better mom, not to mention parent coach. 

In addition I've moved forward with my Family Mindfulness Series and published the second book, with a third one in planning! That along with my other new duties has pushed me to scale back my private coaching, and move more into public speaking. I'm still here, though, and happy to talk if you need to reach out!  In the meantime, I hope you'll take the time to check out our app, peek at my new book...or maybe even both!
