PROGRAMS OFFERED

I have created numerous programs to meet the vast and growing social media needs of parents, teens, educators and students.  Each program is a living program that is updated frequently as the social media landscape changes.  New programs are also being created as new needs arise.  It is my goal to meet people where they are.  My programs are anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.  Each one is audience specific.  I speak with schools (inservice the entire staff and/or students),  after school programs,  churches (adult and child programs), community conferences, companies (many times through company wellness programs), as well as other various institutions and conferences.  I can speak to small intimate groups of just a few people, to audiences well over 1,000.  An in depth discussion of each program is presented when a program is requested.

What moms are saying:

I attended one of Kristi's events in Birmingham this summer and found it very eye opening!  As a parent, I felt I did adequate follow up on my boys and what screen time they were engaging in daily.  All the tips, tools, and new information Kristi provided helped me to realize there was more I could do to keep them safe and limit screen time.  I am now easily able to put these into practice.  Given that we found it so beneficial we are encouraging local schools to allow her to come visit and speak with the students!"
