Founder & Executive Director

Kristin is currently a Business Performance Advisor with Insperity. There she helps small/mid-size business leaders find people-tailored solutions, so they can focus more time on producing profitability for their organization. 

Previously, Kristin worked for 16.5 years in hospitality sales management and training delivery, with Marriott International. She led hotel sales/marketing teams across Texas, before taking on the sales training program for Select Service brands in the US and Canada, at Marriott’s headquarters (Bethesda, MD). Through her career upbringing in hospitality, Kristin excelled in transformational sales leadership, client relationships and rapport, project management and logistics, stakeholder collaboration, planning and organization. She is the recipient of the Sales Leader of the Year award, Community Service Sales Leader of the Year award (via Concord Hospitality), and Direct Sales Leader of the Year (via Marriott International). Kristin has volunteered many hours with Ronald McDonald House – Houston, and Feed The Children, and is currently serving as a Difference-Maker with The Butterfly Project.

     However, if you ask her, one of her favorite roles in life has been that of sister to Josh Paul, and their younger brother, Jeremy. Just under three years younger than Josh, he was her first friend. They were always close; playing music together, playing baseball and cheering alongside one another, singing karaoke, and running races together. She founded this organization in hopes of continuing his legacy and keeping his memory alive. Kristin is happily married, with three beautiful children.
