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 Content Director, and I am also one of the hosts on, HelloJoey, a parenting app. 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 first book! That along with my other new duties has pushed me to scale back my private coaching, and move more into public speaking and getting my books published. 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! 

The Bell Bowl

The first book of The Family Mindfulness Series has been published! You can get your copy on Amazon now, and keep an eye out for the next book in the series...which is currently in production. 

The single best investment you can make in your child isn't which school they go to, or what classes they take--it's the relationship they have with you, their parents. And like most investments, the earlier you start the higher your return. If you are ready to invest in your child's future today, contact me for your free consultation.


Babies don't come with instruction manuals, and kids don't have directions. There's no "correct" way to parent. So what's a mom or dad to do?

I help parents understand 3 key pieces of parenting: Development, Self-Regulation, and Mindfulness. Once each of these areas is addressed, they become like the three legs of a stool--and provide a sturdy base for parenting decisions now and later. 

Looking for a speaker for your next event?
