Krista provides advice to organizational leaders on preventing, navigating and recovering from workplace challenges and crisis. Her work as a conflict mediator and advisor focuses on early interventions to reduce the harm and cost of internal conflicts.
Krista's approach acknowledges individual lived experience in the workplace and the restoration of a future-focused relationship. She works on practical empowerment of each individual to meet their needs in the workplace relationship and encouragement of all participants to share responsibility for creating a workplace environment that allows everyone to flourish and experience inclusion and belonging.
Krista is a certified workplace investigator. She practiced corporate labour and employment law for ten years before moving into transformative mediation and restorative justice. She launched a new practice, Root and Branch-Workplace Conflict Resolutions in 2020 and we are excited to have her as a partner on our team.
