My “friend from afar” Kristy Arnett described her mother as a “Tiger Mom” – a tough Korean woman who told her daughter to do things not because you enjoy them but because you need to be the very best at them – no mediocrity in this family.  This principle defined Kristy’s future and the way she approached everything in her life.

Kristy’s life turned upside down when she found out that the love of her life, her husband of several years, was having an affair and that devastated her…for a time.  She was supposed to have been “the best” wife and companion – remember that’s what her mom taught her, but life has a way of not always going the way you planned.


Healing came through hard work, vulnerability and honesty, with herself and her husband.  Together they committed to make things whole and they are moving on to start a family.  However, like many women, including Debby, Kristy has miscarried and wonders HOW and WHEN she’s going to become a mom.  Listen in to how she is coping today.

Kristy, by profession, is a well-known Professional World Poker player.  She is one familiar with risk taking and says we should approach everything in life as a risk!  Join us as Kristy discusses her struggles and DEFINING MOMENTS and how they are helping her move forward, personally and professionally.
