As an ADRIA Certified Mediator and Workplace Restoration Specialist whose Political Science background from the University of Calgary, Kairistie Walker is fulfilling a promise she made to herself to be part of a positive greater cause, where she can make a difference. Assisting individuals transform and grow as heroes in control of their own stories is very rewarding for her.
She spent the past decade applying her skills and expertise in the business world, where she helped build and establish Ferrari Maserati of Alberta, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Alberta, and Alfa Romeo Alberta as their Director of Marketing. She is thankful to have worked in the bespoke and the exotic Formula One world, where she learned a lot about different cultures, international associations, and the business models for each brand. Her steadfast ability to link and forge connections has been an asset, as she appreciates all she learned and experienced over the decade. She feels blessed to have met and built relationships with many amazing individuals.
Whether it is relationships involving love, career, family, friends, or business, she believes in an inclusive, wholistic approach. Her facilitation of understanding, active listening, and an underlying goal of building bridges through trust is an exercise in living a healthy, just life. For Kairistie, it’s all about individual exploration and [ultimately] pivoting toward transformation.
Alternative dispute resolution is a rewarding field that Kairistie looks forward to spending a lot more time exploring.
Stress is merely fear. Fear will be around, it’s primal and from humanity’s past, so flip the script, consciously flip that negative message biologically created and running round and round in one’s head by waking up each morning and actively choosing to create a life one loves!
