About Kerstin Kirchsteiger, PhD

Headshot cut2

I am a Scientist turned Life & Leadership Coach.

The emotional rollercoaster motherhood took me on led me to dive deep into the study of Emotional Intelligence and so I became a GENOS certified practitioner. My journey of motherhood and entrepreneurship and lots of conversation with working moms made it clear that work-life integration is a topic most working moms struggle with. 

Leveraging my analytical nature combined with my understanding for individualized solutions, I have created a system for moms to peel back the layers of obligations, expectations and guilt and build a life they're excited to get up for every day.

Currently, I offer executive coaching that includes tools of Emotional Intelligence, Respectful Parenting and Leadership Training that helps my clients define their leadership state, find their Work-Life Flow, and give them tools for a successful career.  

In my Leadership Consulting I have worked with clients from Thermo Fisher, Exelixis, Elemis, Aprio, FCSS, EDF Renewables and Quidel.

When I'm not working with clients you can find me mountain biking or enjoying the great outdoors with my family.
