Why Grace Delivers?
A sabbatical led Kristin to paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the magical island of Maui, from Charleston, South Carolina in 2008. Just after arriving, she had a dream where she envisioned Grace Delivers, and her brand mantra was born. The journey since has led her around the world a few times over, following her passion for travel and exploration, launching and growing brands, and raising awareness for important ideas. Her depth and breadth of connections creates a unique community of like-minded people that want to live consciously and make a difference.
Kristin explains her philosophy: The word grace has many layers of meaning and also, great power. Everything presented with grace seems to have a special dignity. Grace Delivers is my personal conviction to stay true to "grace"- I believe a world with more grace would be a kinder, gentler and more successful place, and I am committed to my role in that.
Always a global ambassador, if it involves adventure, discovery, and inspiration...the answer is yes.
