Kristen David, a former trial lawyer who went from working eighty-five hours a week and being a slave to her law firm, built her business up to a million-dollar-plus business that thrived without her. Since selling her business, she now empowers business owners to build profitable businesses that are self-managed.
Born and raised in Southern Oregon, Kristen grew up on a farm where her mother owned and operated Siskiyou Vineyards Winery in Cave Junction. Kristen graduated as valedictorian and went on to attend Lewis & Clark College and Northwestern School of Law. Kristen defended lawyers and doctors in malpractice cases in Portland, Oregon for fifteen years, where she was a partner of a successful law firm before selling her interests. Kristen’s no-nonsense approach and results-oriented methodology has allowed her to help more than 1,500 business owners better manage their businesses.
Kristen walks the walk by running her own thriving, profitable business, Upleveling Your Business, virtually while traveling the world. She is dedicated to helping business owners build a business so they can live life freely and “thrive in the moment.” She is an avid fly fisherwoman and geocacher, and she loves to paint small watercolors while traveling. When home, she can often be found in the kitchen, enjoying a glass of wine while cooking wonderful meals. She splits her time between Paris, France, the Pacific Northwest in the United States and traveling.
