Have you been diagnosed
with breast cancer and
decided it’s finally time to:

Love yourself like never before?

Live more fully than you ever have?

Create a life you adore, with the right
kinds of people and work?

Kristen Carter

If so, you and I share this diagnosis and these important priorities — and I’m devoted to giving you inspiration and ideas for bringing your dreams to life.

Hi, I’m Kristen Carter. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and again in 2018. The second diagnosis was much more serious, and once the urgent treatment phase had passed, I made some big life changes.

No longer did I want to:

  • Spend time with people who drained my energy
  • Waste as much precious time as I used to
  • Do work that didn’t feel meaningful
  • Take myself and this beautiful life for granted

I used the coaching tools I’d taught clients for more than ten years and the impact has been profound.

I now absolutely love my life and myself and am happy with where I am and what I do. No matter what happens in the future, I will feel fulfilled and without regrets.


I want the same for you.

If you do, too, here are three things you can start with right now.

  1. Download my free eBook, “Surfing Life’s Tidal Waves.” It will help you navigate the four phases of a life-altering experience: the initial shock, regaining your balance, determining your top priorities, and living well no matter what.
  2. Surf the blog for tips and tools for navigating this crazy phase of your life.
  3. Get in touch! If you’d like to work with me one-on-one, I coach a small handful of clients personally.

No matter what you decide to do, welcome to this loving space and all the best for your health and your life.
