“Life is an interview: Be prepared with a successful strategy.” – Christina Nepstad

“The Power Seat program is the key that unlocks what most women today are lacking: a solid sense of self. This program is a comprehensive path of introspection that enables women to begin an inner journey of self-exploration that ultimately leads to the development of a true identity. Upon reaching this destination, women will be able to lead lives of power, efficacy, and meaning. Rather than following external, social and cultural roads toward selfhood, Christina guides sojourners on a personal, internal trek toward finding their voice and self-expression. Once attaining this internal compass, she demonstrates how women can take charge of their lives and navigate the arduous waters of professional interviews, dating, and interpersonal communications of all sorts. As a psychologist, I look forward to recommending this program to my patients who struggle with finding their identity, so they can learn how to approach from a position of strength that is anchored in a coherent sense of self.”   – Shannae Rickards Anderson, Ph.D Licensed Psychologist who specializes in the treatment of women who have a history of trauma and abuse, addictions, eating disorders, and self-harm. www.DrShannae.com

“When it comes to my life, I have always had a difficult time dealing with change. When I graduated from college, I had a really tough time transitioning from a college student to a young adult. Then I came to Christina to train for a state competition- and my life was changed forever. I will be completely honest: The Power Seat program is not for the lighthearted. It was emotionally intense, tough to swallow- and exactly what I needed. Through Christina’s program, I was finally able to not only discover who I am, but to truly embrace who I am-everything about myself, good and bad-the 80 and the 20! I found true balance in myself and learned how to reflect that balance in social situations, job interviews and public speaking events. Now 27, I am a professional singer and am training in a career in development for theatre companies. To this day, one of the biggest compliments I receive is how natural I appear speaking publicly and how eloquent and personable I am when interacting in a social environment or in that everyday interview. Whenever I receive these compliments, I think of Christina- and The Power Seat”   – Kayla Bailey
