Kristen R. Voetmann, Ph.D.

Consultant Kristen VoetmannScontrino-Powell, Inc.


The central theme of my work is to help clients learn from their situation and develop a strategy for their future – all while being present and effective now. I do this by listening in order to understand who you are and the context you are in. Then we work together to identify and develop practical solutions that integrate evidence-based resources. By the end of our time together, my goal is have helped you create processes that ensure your success in current and future roles.

I began my career in higher education and have a strong understanding of university culture and processes. At Scontrino-Powell, we are committed to making the workplace work by integrating experience and the science of psychology at the individual, team, and organization levels.
