Meet Kristen Elyse

Certified Life Coach, Trained Yoga Teacher, Happy Corporate Working Woman

Wowie, where to begin. 

I started out my adult life thinking I wanted what I was told an adult should have: a steady office job, to get married and maybe have kids (never have been sold on this one, tbh), buy a home, yadda yadda yadda. 


I quit my first adult job I had in Minnesota to move to NYC with my boyfriend thinking I was big shit, but then ended living in a cockroach infested apartment. I got a real life Devil Wears Prada job- rage quit after 6 months. I then got a cushy corporate finance job- I rage quit that one too. I let my body gooooooo and just stopped taking care of myself. I had student debt up to my eyeballs. My mental health was hanging on by a thread. I was drinking just to avoid dealing with it all.

I. Was. Miserable. It was a textbook Millennial Quarter Life Crisis. 

Not all of the journey was bad though. After quitting the second job in NYC I became a certified life coach and yoga teacher, and started Kristen Elyse Coaching. I have also successfully paid of ALL of my debt, maintained my relationship with my partner of 7+ years on our terms (much to the dislike of some in our lives that value the "traditional" family only), got in to bodybuilding, and even went back to working in a corporate job but this time for a company that valued me.

I got my shit together (mostly).

Through sharing my stories and telling people how I've pulled myself out of the hole several times, in conjunction with actually being trained to coach people, I  have helped a lot of women get their shit together as well.

Insert inspirational message about how if I can do it, anyone can!

So roll up your metaphorical sleeves and let's get to work together.
