kj about

One thing you should know about me? I’ve been there. I’ve had that moment where I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, “Who am I?”  Even with an Ivy-league education, high visibility as a national champion athlete and professional success, I struggled to feel authentically seen and recognized for all I had to offer.  I felt invisible. I believe that real impact and transformation happens when you are seen, heard and valued for who you truly are.  It's not about being perfect, it's about embracing all of yourself and inspiring others through your energy.  

I love my business because I get to work with amazing people — interesting, funny, compassionate, creative and yearning to show up authentically to reach their full potential. It is unbelievably rewarding to teach people the tools to show up more fully in their lives and feel more confident being the best version of themselves..

I’m no stranger to presence and high performance. Growing up as the daughter of artists and professional athletes, I learned that how we show up in the world communicates in ways that words just can’t. Your outer presence should be an congruent extension of who you are and help you tap into your own sense of personal power and potential.  Through my apprenticeship with Bay Area psychologist and image consultant Barbara Carroll, I learned the psychology of presence and how we create alignment so I can support my clients to speak and lead their lives aligned from the inside out.

I’m committed to compassion, authenticity and laughter — because I believe great things happen when we can truly share ourselves with the world and share a good laugh with each other. With a bachelor's degree from Princeton University and a master’s degree from Lewis & Clark College, I also bring my experience as an educator, elite athlete, entrepreneur, creative, artist, partner, mother, friend and lifelong learner into everything I do.   

I live in a city I love -- Portland, Oregon -- but I work with clients from all over the world, with frequent sessions up and down the west coast. When I’m not working, I’m usually having silly dance parties with my friends and family, reading a book, traveling or sweatin’ through a game of squash. 

I can’t wait to learn more about you!
