Hey Hey Heeeey!!

I am Dr. Kristen


I have such a heart for men and am so excited to host this ONE OF A KIND RETREAT experience just for you!

You Ready for the Beach???

I've been supporting men in some way for the last 20+ years!

From the majority of the participants in my youth program being boys to my dissertation being on the school completion and drop out among Black men, to being the first woman speaker in many male spaces, to working with college male athletes to being able to support, mentor and coach some of the most amazing men, I’ve been honored. I hosted the first Candid Conversations in Oct 2016 and decided to bring it back! And then decided to expand it to a retreat experience!

"Was blessed with the opportunity to attend [Candid Conversations] last night and I must say to all my brothers out there if ever the chance comes around again to go, it’s a must. Met a lot of great people and learned a lot about self value self healing and self love"
