Kristy is Cove’s Director of Impact and heads our new Impact Consulting division. Her role is to maximize Cove’s positive social and environmental impact through new internal and external initiatives. She also works with clients who want to use their business or wealth as a force for good. Kristy helps clients understand the positive impact they’re already creating and how they can grow that impact into the future.
Her aim: to ensure that all Cove clients are being the change they wish to see in the world.
Her guiding principle for impact: forget perfection and start today.
Kristy is new to the west coast, having recently made the move from Lunenburg, NS. She has a wealth of experience working with for-profit companies, building unique social and environmental impact strategies. A child of family enterprise, her mission is to help entrepreneurs, investors, and professionals lead with impact and understand the value they create (that doesn’t fit on a balance sheet). She has certified 11 B Corps, assisted citizens in investing $8.5 million in community-owned wind farms, and worked with numerous thought leaders and systems changers.
Outside of Cove, Kristy enjoys exploring her new west coast home, volunteering for various environmental and social causes, playing the piano, hot yoga, and dance (ballet).
