Kristie Kennedy      

Women's Worth and Wellness Expert

If you could describe Kristie Kennedy in one word it would be UNSTOPPABLE!

One of her favorite quotes from the famous Mother to Son poem by Langston Hughes is "Life for me ain't been no crystal stair" and yet she continues to climb higher one step at a time.

She is a unique woman who is known for motivation, inspiration and empowerment. As a young lady she encountered many challenges in the school system and found out early in life that one has the power to create their own destiny in spite of societal labels.

It was difficult for her to pass standardized tests which caused her to be placed in lower level classes during her freshman year in high school.

During her junior year of high school she went to her guidance counselor and asked if she could be placed in regular level courses. She wanted to attend a four year university and would have to take Geometry and Algebra II concurrently in order to meet their academic requirements.

Kristie worked untiringly and accomplished the goal of being one of the first and few in her family to attend college. The struggle to excel would continue as she approached her college graduation and would have to take another standardized test.

She was determined to succeed and took the math portion seven times, a main area of weakness. The Dean granted her leniency in order to graduate from Florida State University in 1997.

Kristie understands in the words of Marva Collins that, "Success doesn't come to you, you go to it." It is this entrepreneurial and enterprising mindset that has led her to achieve many of her greatest accomplishments.

She considers herself to be an eternal optimist, which is an attitude essential to the life of a dreamer. Many of her peers are amazed at how she continues to pursue dreams in the midst of adversity.

When she experienced being laid off for the first time in her life, she decided to start her own business and determined to never allow all of her financial eggs to be placed in one basket.

She learned the power of diversification and leveraging human capital.

Kristie is a multitalented woman who is simple yet complex. Kristie has lived through two floods that destroyed her personal belongings but once again she bounced back and moved out of a one bedroom apartment into a brand new home.

In 2007, during severe financial hardship she was selected as one of 50 participants to attend Tomorrow People Women in Leadership Conference in Bangkok, Thailand. During August 2009, Kristie was diagnosed with Fibroid Tumors and advised by her doctor to have a $20-30,000 surgery to remove them.

This was not feasible due to the fact that she did not have health insurance. Yet in still, the spirit of this champion rose to the occasion and turned it around for good. She decided to compete in a platform based pageant to educate women on this common health issue among women at large. In September 2010, she was crowned the American Image National Woman in Charleston, South Carolina.

Ms. Kennedy has had a gift of creativity, speaking and writing since childhood. For many years writing was her personal therapist to help cope with the struggles of life. Today, Kristie is licensed esthetician, a professional writer for several women's beauty sites, a self published author, recording artist, poetess, custom jewelry designer and motivational speaker.

As a makeup artist who is passionate about beautifying women she had the honor of showcasing her tutorials on Tyra Banks beauty website at www.typef.com. In addition, her style videos are on www.ehow.com. Kristie is grateful to her mother for instilling the spirit of excellence in everything she does and her father who has taught her how to fight for the future no matter how dismal the present may appear to be.
