We had the good fortune of connecting with Kynedi Chrystine and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kynedi, what matters most to you?
I value integrity the most! “Do it right, even if no one is watching” For as long as I can remember, I’ve naturally found myself in leadership roles. With that, I feel as though I have a responsibility. That responsibility is to lead by example, and inspire these “followers” to become effective wellness leaders of themselves, and within their communities. I have God, my parents, grandmother, and awesome coaches to thank for planting this core value in me!

The Founder Journey:
I created the rough draft of the Wellness Connect business plan back in January 2018. At the time I had just graduated with a Bachelors of Science, and was full time health/wellness educator and sports coach.
I told myself I’d get started on the plan as soon as possible, and wouldn’t procrastinate or let “life get in the way”. Well… life happened. I became occupied with all the “who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s, and how’s”, my day-to-day responsibilities, and it took me a little longer than expected. Like many people, I did quite a bit of self reflection during quarantine. My occupation with planing the perfect launch and perfecting my craft, distracted me from taking action! Through years of practice and teaching, I know the extreme benefits of creating actionable goals to improve my own health and wellness all to well. I just had to make the connection.
Now, as the founder and CEO of Wellness Connect, I can confidently say I am serving my community by providing quality wellness education and products. Equipping others with Wellness education Helping others create and execute personal actionable wellness plans is my passion!
