“Kiana is a strategic thinker and dynamic facilitator.  She will inspire you to examine your organization in an unconventional manner that will allow you to transform and grow.  If you are ready to accept that challenge, she will provide you with the infrastructure needed to achieve your goals.”

“One thing is certain, when you meet Kiana, you will find her enthusiastic, engaging, genuine, personable yet relentless, and always all in. Her dynamic commitment to any team she joins will inspire and ignite.  She is simply infectious and you will find yourself a willing partner in her next adventure.”

“I knew that there was something special about Kiana from our first conversation. Her energy is contagious, her passion is admirable, her drive to better those around her is inspirational, and her willingness to challenge the status quo sparked my interest immediately. I have grown professionally and personally while working with Kiana on Lattus and purpose driven non-profits. You get what you see when you work with this rockstar and you will never question integrity or work ethic. I am grateful to have her as a mentor, a coach, and a friend. Thanks for pushing me out of my comfort zone and challenging me to better myself in mind, body, and spirit daily!"

Pete Schramm, Founder & CEO, Lattus

“I've had the opportunity to connect with Kiana both professionally and personally, gleaning so much from the wisdom that is so beyond her years and the visceral tone she takes when she's just about ready to cut through the symptoms of an issue and find its resolve. Her style, while certainly resolution-based, is more about her approach and meeting her clients where they are. Working with her inspires. It excites. And, ultimately, it has steadied much of my own meandering.”

Brandon Rogers, Chief Financial Officer, Verber Dental Group

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

“Tenacious, passionate and agile are a few of the qualities that describe Kiana's approach to creative problem solving and tackling challenges.  As a big picture thinker, Kiana always strives to first understand client needs and works to exceed their expectations with well reasoned ideas and questions.”

Daniel Santoro, Deputy Manager, Cranberry Township

“Kiana is a natural leader, bringing diverse groups together in an authentic way. She leads with a sincerity that enables her clients to be their best.”

Laurie Barkman, Growth Advisor, SmallDotBig LLC

"When clear headed input was what I needed to launch my nonprofit, Kiana met me and delivered clear questions, objective feedback, and an opportunity to take some concrete steps in the next direction. As she invited me to participate in group dialogue and problem solving, a talent for facilitating individual growth is something Kiana just oozes. Action-oriented focus ignited my confidence to take the next steps, heed her wisdom, and launch from there!”

Holly Joy McIlwain, Founder, Brave Women Project
