About Me


First things first, Knarie is pronounced as (Kay-Na-Ree). If I had a dollar for how many times people have asked me how to pronounce it, I would probably be a millionaire!


Let’s proceed.


Hey there! I am Kristy and I am a lifestyle blogger, motivational speaker and event host. On a day to day basis, you can catch me in the library on campus, in a park either walking around or somewhat working out, or in Target (shamelessly). I really enjoy being around people, and I live to motivate others to accomplish their goals, live their dreams, and follow their passions!

This was a huge deal to me, and although I placed last, I knew that speaking was my gift. After years of speaking at conferences in multiple states, across multiple research and  scholastic platforms, I decided that I wanted to become a speaker. However, not just any type of speaker, a motivational speaker. I became so interested in why people in their late 20’s and early 30’s began to stop follow their dreams and…well..settle. This is not what God destined for us to do, and I am here to help!


Now that you are here, please feel free to watch my videos, read my blogs, and share the website with your friends! I am on social media so feel free to follow me! I also have an email list which will keep you up to date with all of the conferences  I will be speaking at and all of my new video and blog posts!

So if you’re ready to start living your life to the fullest, take chances and reap the rewards and lessons, subscribe, follow and be ready to be motivated to change for the better!
