About KVS

Krista began working with business owners and organizations in 1991 to identify strategies to achieve better productivity. She often found that many lacked a clear plan for success, or lacked effective implementation of a plan already completed. Still others had reached a plateau of success upon realizing that running a successful business required business expertise in everything from attracting and inspiring a great team to increasing profitability.

KV Strategies was launched in 1998 to provide solutions to businesses and organizations needing to define and implement a path to their success. Some call it a business plan, or a strategic plan, or even a funding plan. Many come to know it as their ‘playbook for productivity’.

Krista has facilitated hundreds of plans for businesses and organizations of all kinds. Her work has brought her across the United States and into Europe and Asia.

She was awarded the Women in Leadership Scholarship from Rochester Institute of Technology’s E. Philip Saunders College of Business in 2010 and graduated with honors with her Executive MBA in 2012. She has since been added to the faculty at Saunders College of Business as an Adjunct Professor teaching Leadership Skills.

When Krista is not guiding plans for businesses or organizations, she leads small-group retreats to Chiapas, Mexico to entrepreneurial communities in Tuxtla-Gutierrez and indigenous communities in the mountains surrounding San Cristobal de las Casas and beyond.

Your task is to see the future. Mine is to help you enable it. I’ve been guiding business owners, practice owners, and their teams in purposeful planning for 20 years. My success has always been measured by the value I provide and results I deliver.
