“Working with Kristi has been amazing! I’ve always heard how
important it is for an actor to have a strong connection with the body
and voice. Her method gives me the freedom to create authentic
dialects for my characters, while also living out each scene- without
being in my head about pronouncing each syllable correctly. In a
nutshell: Kristi has made me a stronger and more confident actor.”
