Cristy (aka mexi-minnesotana) is a leadership coach, podcast host for Somatic Wisdom, and author of Unleash, Unlearn, and Enliven: Seven Micro-Practices to Engage Your Somatic Wisdom. In my free time she listens to far too many podcasts (usually while walking), and read ~20-30 books a year. She has made Minnesota (Twin Cities area) her home since 1998. Her dad was born in Mexico, and her mom is Minnesotan. She is a “pale Latina,” reflecting Swedish/Mexican/Cornish/Spanish/(and god knows what else) ancestry.
She was a clinical researcher for 11+ years, working for a large medical device company as an operations manager for an international clinical research team. Before that she worked for a University as a grant writer, and worked in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector.
This blog is an attempt for her to make sense of my life, experiences, the world and to voice concerns of people who may not be heard. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments so we might have some dialogue on topics that matter.
Find Cristy on LinkedIn if you wish to send a personal message. I really appreciate your comments on my posts, and your time in reading.
Thank you for reading!

Vianney, thank you! I appreciate you checking out the site! I now post only about once a month these days since I am more often at http://www.wedefydefinition.com these days. But I do love to write, and some of it will go into a book someday… 😉
I was born in Wisconsin and now live in Minnesota, too!
My husband and I are high school sweethearts, married forever! Lol
I write a sober/life blog!
It is a joy to get to know other bloggers in this virtual community.
