At age 45 Kristin Godwin had a mid-life crisis that served as a gateway to a more authentic and fulfilling life. In one year she lost a child, divorced a husband of 15 years and ended a 20-year career in journalism. On the other side of these challenges she found hope and gratitude that led to careers in professional counseling and guiding 4x4 tours. Kristin specializes in working with victims of sexual abuse and intimate partner violence; as well as substance use and mandated domestic violence offenders. She is a wife; the mother of five biological children and three bonus children; and the grandmother (Zsa Zsa) to six grandchildren. She feeds (and speaks lovingly to) 15 chickens, two dogs, two ducks, two rabbits and a cat each day.
