Meet Kristin Light

Creative marketing strategist & former vintage dance specialist Kristin Light has split her multi-decade eclectic career between the boardroom and the ballroom.

As a vivacious showgirl and co-founder of a successful events company, she was perhaps the last person you’d expect to be suffering with relentless depression. But following a brush with suicide that left her confined to a psychiatric ward, she now speaks out to provide real insight and practical strategies that demystify the facts surrounding mood disorders and mental illness including inspirational (and often hilarious)  stories from her own personal and professional life.
