I’m Kirsten, author, a story curator, and movement expert. I guide people in restoring their sense of self after major life changes.

Kirsten Schowalter was born in Minnesota, but calls many locations – from Seattle, Washington to Marshfield, Wisconsin – her home. Upon her high school graduation, she attended her father’s Alma Mater: St. Olaf College. Subsequent to her college years, she moved to Yakima, Washington for the company of family and mountains. She attended the University of California, Berkeley to pursue a graduate degree, and is a member of the San Francisco Writer’s Grotto. She dances, writes, hikes, and spends times with her family in Tacoma, Washington as much as possible. And… she baked the scrumptious pies below! Thank you to Johnson Orchards for the training!
