I'm Kerri Van Kirk:
My background as a content strategist, producer, and copywriter for women-led businesses in the coaching and branding industry, as well as an insatiable creator of one woman shows, poetry albums, podcasts and programs in my own business and artistry, makes me the perfect partner to help you get unstuck and finally make your ideas a reality.
You know it, I know it, & likely, your partner/spouse/best friend/dog/spirit guide knows it.
If you've got an idea (or unfinished drafts) of a creative, business or thought leadership project that you are being called to fulfill - I would love to help.
With over a decade of experience - from books, to podcasts, to Kickstarter campaigns, to group coaching programs, to websites to one woman shows - I have the skill and intuition to take your project to from idea to reality.
I understand the pain of not being able to fulfill your creative vision or live up to your potential. My hard skills help you get the job done, while my facilitation skills in energy healing, coaching and intuition help move stuck energy more quickly (and enjoyably) than you could on your own.
If you're seeking a temporary creative partner to jumpstart you - or step by step help make your project real - I invite you to connect.
My "hard" skills include ghostwriting, editing, copywriting, audio editing, video producing and website doula'ing ;) I also bring my experience as a coach and healer into the mix. Each project and creator is uniquely different and has distinct needs and desires. I specialize in business and thought leadership endeavors like books, podcasts and websites, and artistically, one person shows, performances, and personal narrative.
Custom 1-1 work starts with filling out a questionnaire so I can learn about your project and intentions. Based on your form, we'll set up a meeting to discuss further and I can propose options!
What is your background?
I got my professional start as a right hand woman, virtual assistant, copywriter and strategist for women led coaching businesses. I’ve listened to literally thousand of hours of business and entrepreneurship podcasts and I literally think in web pages and email sequences.
My artistic background began in dance, theater, and co-creating the school tv show #lovedit. (I graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts high school program and the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU with a BFA in Acting). At the end of college, I became a singer-songwriter and performed in NYC before losing my voice and being unable to sing without pain - which is what led me to helping female entrepreneurs while I healed. Since then, I've created poetry albums, narrative podcasts and one woman shows as a solo artist.
I don’t like to call myself a business coach because I’m not one…but I am definitely, without a doubt, a business creator and valuable resource on your way to clarity + personal expression + service in your biz. If you haven't noticed, there are a million business coaches out there, but not many creative midwives that will go in the trenches with you. The combination of artistic and entrepreneurial skill is what makes me unique. Oh yeah, and my ability to tune into your energy field and untangle energetic patterns that have been keeping you from expressing your radiance fully in the world. ;)
"Kerri is an incredibly gifted coach and healer. Her ability to hold space and intuitively guide you through your process is unmatched. Before working with Kerri, I was working through some limiting beliefs such as "needing to do it all on my own" and feeling lost and confused.
Through UHP, Human Design, and Kerri's embodied listening, I was able to accept myself exactly as I am, gain so much clarity and understanding, and truly give myself permission to be the person I already am.
Kerri has this presence that I trusted immediately which is so key while doing this vulnerable, personal work. Anytime old wounds would come up throughout our sessions such as guilt or shame, she guided me into a softening to accept my light as well as my shadow. Thank you, Kerri!"
