"Sometimes you pick your career, sometimes your career picks you."

In 2017, after fifteen years as a technical and leadership professional in the Oil and Gas Industry, Kiersten embarked on the most significant challenge of her life: gender transition. 


Gender transition was life-changing in more ways than one.  Her authentic and vulnerable approach to transition allowed her to foster a deeper and more personal connection with her coworkers, and that allowed Kiersten to see how authenticity in the workplace can help to build synergy in the office.  As she continued her corporate career, Kiersten also found new motivation to engage in a more meaningful life through volunteering, educating herself with a Bachelor of Psychology, and building a vast network of professionals in the LGBTQ2S+ community.  Kiersten began to truly appreciate the challenges that transgender and gender diverse individuals face in the realm of careers and employment.  Ultimately, her experience ignited a personal passion to make the transition process more grounded for those taking a similar path.  This drive led Kiersten to step out of her role in the Oil and Gas Industry and Terra Firma Transition Consulting was born.
