Hi!  I'm Kristen.

Preschool teacher turned early childhood education content and knowledge entrepreneur, podcaster, and keynote speaker! I am your shoot for the stars, risk taking, kick in the pants, hype girl.  I am here to support early childhood educators in their journey to add more play to their teaching practice.  As an added bonus, I also help early childhood educators with marketing strategies to leverage the knowledge they hold in their head to make money in their sleep!
