Who is Kim Kristensen - Warrior Mediator?

Kim was born while his parents were performers in Ringling Bros. Circus and he spent 24 years in the circus performing with his family. He traveled through 49 states (Alaska is on the bucket list), Canada, and Mexico.

Kim first learned about conflict and collaboration working with leopards, horses, acrobats, and clowns. 

He was "homeschooled", and went on to get his Bachelor's in Management and Human Resources and a Master's in Social Sciences with a focus on Psychology.

He has been a manager for public (government), private, and nonprofit businesses, and he is also an entrepreneur.  

Kim is a Certified Mediator through the Virginia Supreme Court, and he is Trauma-Informed.

Kim has also had some rather eclectic experiences!

  • Vision Quest (4 days on a mountain top without food and limited water).
  • Working with Shamans in the Amazon rain forest.
  • Men's initiation weekends.
  • Being charged by an enraged female elephant and standing his ground (mostly out of fear!).

  • Staying in a committed relationship with his wife for over 20 years (the greatest teacher of all!).

A few Circus memories...

Note: This is how I was raised - as a performer in the Circus. 

I do NOT support wild animals in the circus!
