The central theme of Kristen’s life and work is to ‘Learn from the past. Prepare for the future. Live in the Present.’ She began her career working in higher education with the aim of engaging the curricular and co-curricular more cohesively to enhance the educative experience for students, staff, and faculty. When she was introduced to Industrial-Organizational Psychology, however, she knew she had found her deeper calling. In her staff consultant role at Scontrino-Powell, Kristen works at the individual, team, and organization levels to develop sustainable solutions for clients by integrating evidence-based research and practical experience. Additionally, Kristen is certified as a StrengthsFinder coach and trainer, serves on Taproot Theatre Company’s Board of Directors, and teaches as an adjunct professor at Seattle Pacific University.Learn More/Register
About KIROS Bellevue
Welcome to the Bellevue Chapter page. The original KIROS chapter, which held its first meeting in March of 2002, serves Christians in business throughout the Eastside.
We meet monthly for breakfast at Maggiano’s Little Italy on NE 8th Street in downtown Bellevue where we connect, encourage, and equip each other to be transformed by rooted relationship in our personal, KIROS community, and business lives. Additionally, we meet in various small group settings to discuss the intersection of our Christian faith and our work.
The Bellevue Chapter is a place for everyone, not just senior leaders and entrepreneurs, but people from all walks and stages of business life. We work across sectors – financial services, the trades, design, manufacturing, sales, consulting; and with a diverse community: business owners, young entry-level employees, corporate executives, and entrepreneurs. We are intentionally co-ed, providing a safe environment for men and women to interact in a business setting.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Bellevue Chapter, please contact the Bellevue KIROS Administrator at email@example.com.
