Chief Legal Counsel, USA Financial
"Coach Christen was the featured speaker at USA Financial’s inaugural, women’s-initiativeevent. At the end of Christen’s empowering message, we were all emotionally raw and there was hardly a dry eye in the house. The reactions I heard most from the women in the audience were, “I felt like she was talking directly to me,” and “You have no idea how much I needed to hear that at this moment.” Several male colleagues attended Christen’s talk, as well, and they all walked away with a better understanding of not only the confidence issues women face and how to support the women in their lives, but also how they can address their own confidence struggles. We are a stronger, more empathetic, and cohesive team thanks to Christen’s presentation. And because of her message, I am confident that more USA Financial women will give themselves credit, give themselves a break, and find their confidence."

"Coach Christen is so special in a million ways, but particularly in her ability to relate to each individual’s journey in her talks. It feels as though she is speaking directly into your heart. Her loving, accepting, and vulnerable attitude makes you feel like you’ve known her your entire life, and she could not be a more perfect person to talk to the importance of confidence and believing in oneself. The importance of mental strength and confidence can often be grossly understated, and finally we have someone like Christen to address the most important aspect of sports and of self-esteem, believing that you can. You walk away feeling like you have gained not only a new perspective, but also tools and skills to help to achieve your greatest goals, in and out of the sporting arena. God placed an angel in my life when He gave me Christen."
Assoc Head Coach, University of Kansas
"Bringing Christen in to speak to our team this fall was one of the wisest and best investments we could have made for our team. Being able to relate as a former athlete and coach was invaluable as she spoke about true confidence. Not only did the team treasure the time they had with her but so did I! She truly has a gift to be able to connect and speak truth to people in a loving, motivating way."
CASSIE MARINO VanDYKE
Dress for Success
"I had the honor of working with Christen for the Dress for Success Atlanta PWG leadership conference. She is an incredible speaker. Her message is uplifting, empowering and necessary. The women in attendance were so uplifted by her message on fear and confidence, faith in self and self love. A woman approached me in tears afterwards saying she knew she was exactly where she was supposed to be the minute Christen started speaking."
Humana, Director of Field Sales Georgia
"We invited Coach Christen in to meet with all the women in our office. We had women from all stages in their lives and careers, and she made an impact on every single person in the room. She led us through some vulnerable conversations and brought awareness to our strengths as women, how to support each other and how to seek and gain confidence in challenging moments. We all walked away as stronger individuals with advice and guidance that extends well beyond our office walls. I am incredibly honored to have had the opportunity to learn and grow from Coach Christen’s wisdom! It was so empowering!"

She is able to get to the core of your mental blocks without being invasive, and provides real-life examples to help you overcome your adversities.

Her passion puts her in a league of her own, and I promise you will leave her with a newfound confidence and drive to take on the world."

Her message was so simple and so relatable, especially considering our diverse group (ages 18-80), everyone walked away inspired."
Athletic Director, Texas Tech
"Coach Christen's message of promoting confidence in female student-athletes is extremely important, now more than ever. Her powerful message allowed Texas Tech Athletics to continue our mission of empowering our female staff and student-athletes."
Dir of Educational Enrichment Services
"Coach Christen is a genuine and passionate woman, who when speaking with our female athletes, empowered and encouraged them to seek more for themselves. Her own experience as an athlete and a female, and her willingness to be vulnerable and share exposed moments of her own life, allowed our female athletes to quickly relate and connect to the message. She definitely touched both hearts and minds that day, challenging them to love themselves more and support each other as young women. Powerful!!!"
Olympic Gold Medalist
"I met Coach Christen at a Women in Coaching Conference. Her presentation on confidence was exactly what I needed to hear in that moment. It was so good, that I chose to have her come and speak to our team. It made a world of difference. I only wish I had heard her speak when I was a college athlete. Her tools on confidence can help anyone and everyone. Confidence is a skill that should be honed and practiced just like any other athletic skill in the pool or on the playing field. In fact, it is the underlying skill that helps athletes to have the courage and tenacity to perfect all the others."
