Meeting Kirsten was a lightbulb moment for me. We have worked together to build our brand and are reaching new and growing markets that we otherwise would have missed if it wasn’t for the “outside” the box thinking from Kirsten. Every step of the way Kirsten has listened to our thoughts, concerns and given guidance that only someone with her expertise could. Working with Kirsten is inspiring and enriching.
