It was an absolute pleasure working with Kristel earlier this year.

What other organizations say about Kristel Bauer

I had the opportunity to hear Kristel’s inspirational message at the Vision Source Exchange and WOW! As a fellow heath care professional, she was able to perfectly blend real life challenges of knowing yourself with science to help me really understand my own challenges in a way that shows me I can make changes to bring more happiness into my own life. Because of Kristel’s message, I will be a stronger leader of my team, a more compassionate doctor to my patients and, most importantly, a better husband and dad. How do you thank someone for that?  My advice is that if you have an opportunity to bring Kristel Bauer to your team, you should take it.
