Presenter

Kristi B. Cannon, PhD, LPC, NCC, is a cis-gender, white female straddling the lines of early and middle adulthood—feeling a foot firmly planted in each camp and the associated lack of balance this causes nearly every day. She is a counselor educator, licensed professional counselor, and current Director of Counseling Programs at Southern New Hampshire University. Inspired, first and foremost, by the infinite curiosity, wisdom, and beautiful insight of the early and middle childhood years—those associated with her precious three daughters—Kristi has also spent considerable time specializing in clinical work with adolescents and women's infertility issues. Her passion for this project came out of a desire to better reflect the meaningful variations in life experiences she witnessed in her community and clinical practice and ones not often or frequently-enough named in graduate textbooks.
