For the past decade, she's worked in the poker industry as a reporter and player, and now as a coach, Kristy's passion to help people and take calculated risks helps get people their desired results. Host and creator of the WTF Am I Doing With My Life? podcast, Kristy brings together people who are looking to answer this question in any domain of their life.
It’s not the piece of paper that says I’m ChoiceCenter certified coach that has brought me the most pride, it’s who I became along the way for people. I now have the skills to coach committed individuals on creating what it is they really want out of life. I attended the training in LV138 and created extraordinary results in my marriage. My husband and I went from near divorce to a thriving, committed, passionate relationship. Since then, I’ve coached three teams through their 100-day leadership journey, including captaining a team. My path as a certified coach has set me up not only to give back to others, but also has given me groundwork for my own life authoring.

“ChoiceCenter brought me to the love of my life, Kristie. I was given a stretch to identify the lady of my dreams. I happened to sit next to one of Kristie’s friends on my flight back from the training. She saw how beaming and full of life I was after finishing the weekend of leadership and EQ training. We started talking and soon after she introduced me to my future wife. We now have three beautiful kids."
Ed Clay, LV140 is the founder of Chipsa Hospital.
“I opened the hospital with Scott and it was part of my ChoiceCenter 100 day PSP. Now we are creating a giant holding company that has a lot of businesses that make a difference in the world. In the next six months, we are making four new companies. It’s blowing up and insane – I can do whatever I want, work really really hard, not blame, take personal responsibility. All these tools Choice gives me. It’s up to you if you want to use the tools – let’s use them to change the world.
We had 980 percent growth in 2016 and plan on seeing 1000 percent growth in 2017 and have 1000 employees, with multiple companies working synergistically together and helping each other to change the world. It will be awesome! It’s powerful and exciting.”
David Silverman founded NFM Lending in 1998 in a tiny corner office in Baltimore with three employees. Today NFM Lending has grown into an award-winning national lender that employs over 400 people with 40-branches.
"While attending Choice’s courses, I transformed my business. I listened, communicated the company vision, and the results came to me. When I put my focus on positive energy, great results happened. In the past, I would just sum it up to luck. In reality, there are no coincidences. Since Choice, I’ve broken all kinds of personal and business records. The one I appreciate the most is being recognized as the number one place to work in Maryland – and that’s voted by the employees. That does not happen unless you are connected to your people and the community.”

“I have a newfound confidence in trusting myself. I owe it to the training I received at ChoiceCenter. In the early part of the year I was doing my Leadership portion of ChoiceCenter, a course on Emotional Intelligence and I set three specific goals for that three-month period. One of those goals was poker related, getting back in the top 15 of the GPI and quickly after completing the course I jumped to number one!"
Antonio Moreno is eco-conscious clothing designer who lives in San Diego California.
DeepVibes partners with charities and finances initiatives that promote social equality and the conservation of our environment. Every garment has been knit, cut, sewn, and dyed in the USA, with the health of our planet at the front of our consciousness. We are a proud member of 1 Percent for the Planet.
Antonio Moreno founder of DeepVibes Apparel has quickly become the preferred outfitter of ChoiceCenter. Without saying a word, the clothes we wear start to communicate our message to the world. This unspoken message is often referred to as our vibe. For Antonio, it was important that he created products locally in the USA, that communicate a vibration of social consciousness, quality, and environmental conservation.
“ChoiceCenter really was a wake up call for me. Although I was already enjoying success in my career, I realized that I hadn’t even begun to create a legacy. DeepVibes is the start of this legacy. I’m not selling clothing. I’m promoting a lifestyle of social consciousness and giving.” Aside from producing sustainable, socially conscious apparel, DeepVibes also partners with “1 Percent for the Planet” and finances initiatives that promote social equality and the conservation of our environment.

I have many lifelong friends who are graduates, and I can’t help but smile with love each time I set foot in the university.
