      Oh, hey!

      I’m Kourtney, and I’ve been at this whole conquer-the-world coaching thing for a while, which means I’m pretty damn good at it. Sort it out, work the problem, adventure through failures, fears, and big fancy goals.

      Over the course of my years as an entrepreneur, I’ve become a go-to resource for a wide range of folks, publications, and podcasts. I know they’d tell you I’m responsive, professional, and insightful. And I’d tell you that I love providing a unique perspective, and I’m totally comfortable writing or speaking in any situation, for any audience.

      I’m pretty easy to talk to, and a few of my favorite “pull up a seat” conversations are around body image and confidence, values, conditioning, awareness, self-compassion, mindset, and self-trust.

      Below, you can find a sampling of articles and podcasts I’ve been featured in, as well as speaking engagements I’ve done. I’m always happy to add to the list, so if you’d like to contact me for an interview or quote, or hire me to speak or facilitate a workshop at your company or event – let’s chat about it today!
