How can one person simultaneously devastate your soul and yet inspire you with her relentless optimism? 

Well on her way to becoming a world-class athlete, Kristen Christy suffered a massive stroke one week before her 16th birthday. When you hear her story of the highest highs and the lowest lows, the perpetual optimism and endearing faith that guides her will inspire you to your very core.

 Kristen is a dynamic speaker with a message that resonates with people from every walk of life. It is a message so powerful that there is never a dry eye in the audience. The only thing more amazing than Kristen’s personal story is her relentless pursuit of transforming her journey of survival, recovery, and rebounding into a tool for others to deal with their own personal challenges and, ultimately, the prevention of suicide. 

 Her “March Forth” initiative and implementation of 9*8*8 as the new National Suicide Prevention Lifeline are testimonies to her ability to impact others in a positive and lasting way. 

As a Speaker, Coach, and Master Resiliency Trainer, Kristen has traveled the world inspiring people to Live More and Fear Less.

 What People Are Saying:
"...Saved my life"
"I walked out during Kristen's presentation. I walked to the Chaplain in the back of the room and handed him my suicide note...I was planning to do it that night. I had to go to training, not knowing what the presentation was...
I felt like I was a burden, things weren't going right at work, at home, in my head...
She spoke to ME that day. She saved my life that day and I am forever grateful.

Someone in your organization needs to experience her energy, authenticity, genuineness, and light."
Don H., New York
"...Captivates and transforms the audience"
"Kristen is by far, one of the most engaging, awe-inspiring and heartwarming speakers you could ever listen to. Her ability to captivate an audience and transform them, even in the midst of tragedy, gives people not only hope, but a future. She is living proof of God’s goodness in the midst of a sometimes difficult, unfair and unyielding world. As an “overcomer", she has been through the crucible of life’s most overwhelming experiences and has embraced God’s grace and resilience in a way that most people could only dream. If she stops even one suicide by sharing her story, I would venture to say she would feel it has all been worth it."
Lt Col Dr. Rev. David F. Tharp, CEO Project Healing Heroes
"... Influx of walk-ins to our Mental Health Clinic"
"We were not prepared for the influx of walk-ins to our mental health clinic after Kristen's gripping story of trauma, tragedy, and the tenacity that it takes to overcome. 

She is saving lives, families, and communities."
