Kristin Rowell is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Lawyer, 25 x marathoner, IPE professional bodybuilder in the Figure division and proud self-experimenter. Kristin came into her calling several years ago after falling on ice and breaking her right leg in 10 places. She believes that each of us is responsible for taking control of our own health and longevity, and she firmly believes that doing so starts with tuning in and listening to the signals our bodies are always sending us. As a former high-stress business trial lawyer turned NTP, Kristin largely serves what she calls the “old” her: high achieving, stressed out, adrenally depleted, cortisol-spiked professionals who strongly desire to prioritize their health and wellness but can’t seem to get out of their own way. The clients who hire Kristin are ready for transformational change, and she works closely with them to ensure that they are able to transform into the person they have always wanted to become. Kristin desires to wake up as many humans as she can on this planet by inspiring people to live their BEST lives. She is thrilled for the opportunity to share her energy and gifts with all of you!!

Stephanie Pierce is a mom, wife, and now, an entrepreneur! After a 24-year career in HR at General Mills, Stephanie re-invented her work life to include both her passion for building communities and her HR expertise. brings amazing women together in community focused on growing, learning, inspiring, laughing, and doing. Stephanie believes that finding the joy and advantages in what makes us similar and what makes us different is a powerful advantage that women can and should possess. Stephanie’s other gig, KJP Consulting, helps businesses achieve results by maximizing the power of their talent. Stephanie is here to help you believe in your power, spirit and ability to live the life & build the hustle you want. Her mantra? Be You. Do You. For You.

Paula Doroff is constantly pursuing ways to help others achieve their greatest potential. With over two decades of experience, Paula climbed her way up the corporate ladder to becoming Vice President of Investments at some of most prominent financial services firms in the world including Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and BlackRock, the world’s largest money management firm. A tough task considering that Paula grew up in poverty in the middle of nowhere in Brazil and doesn’t have a formal education. Paula never let her circumstances define her destiny.

Earlier this year, Paula made the courageous decision to step down from her very successful career on Wall Street to dedicate the rest of her life to fulfill her calling in life as full time as a speaker and coach to inspire, support and connect individuals from all walks of life so they can own their truth and live a life of purpose, fulfillment and authenticity. Paula lives in Edina with her husband and their 2 sons. They enjoy volunteering together and traveling.
