A tense escape from a tiny Alaskan island led me to a complete life-overhaul.
Throw out the cliches and philosophical fluff. As a former Construction Manager, I am big on tools that actually work. Instead of talking at a 10,000 foot level, I talk about tools that help us, right here, right now, down on the ground where we live and struggle, laugh and triumph.
I designed a 2-minute tool which takes no-win scenarios and transforms them into problem-solving game plans.
I have trained thousands of professionals. I love sharing crazy-effective and simple tools with first responders. Get unique and powerful resilience tools to equip you to simply be better faster.
I live in and travel out of Denver, I love hanging out with family and friends, riding motorcycles, shooting, growing orchids, remodelling my home, and living life on fire.
"Her references to personal experiences accentuated the instructional material and brought reality to the training event. I commend Ana-Christina on a job well done and highly recommend her as a facilitator, educator and transformational speaker.”
