The Heart behind the Muscle with your host Kristen Crowley

Kristen Crowley is a woman on a mission. A mission to bring people back together, create networks and reignite the human connection in the world of wellness.

"In a world where social media is king, face to face interaction is now the queen.

In order to connect and grow we need to create networks and make the world of wellness more inclusive”.

Kristen felt the pull at her heart to create events that do just that. Through the power of networking, education and inspiration she wants to utilize her unique set of talents in Design + Food & Beverage + Television + Fitness to create events that will unite our community. As a busy mom of two, Kristen found sanity in the gym and balance in the kitchen. She is ready to share that passion with all of you! Plus, who doesn’t love a good party?

Jessica Larché is an Emmy Award-winning news anchor and the creator and host of her Decide to Live ® Podcast with Jessica Larché and popular Jessica on a Journeyblog. She became a storyteller to shine a light on the experiences of people in communities across the country. As her career in news was taking off, she faced a health crisis due to her rollercoaster weight and food abuse struggles. She could no longer patch her anxieties with food binges if she wanted to live. Her journey to lose 100 pounds — and do the mental, physical and spiritual work to keep it off — saved her life. Her journey was celebrated on the cover of Woman’s Day Magazine in 2016 and in several Hampton Roads publications. She says, “The storyteller in me knows sharing the lessons I’m learning along the way – the real stuff you don’t expect ‘the news lady’ to talk about – will help all of us decide to live!”


Love. Energy. Self Love. Confidence. Congruency. Freedom from Food.

These are not simply just a list of words, they are feelings that I was desperately seeking for so many years. Filling my to-do list with more and more, only to leave myself feeling empty and still searching for something outside of myself… I know that many ambitious women, just like me, can relate to this story. Wanting so badly to have it all- success, love, health, beauty, family and true connections- but not ever feeling like it all is within reach. I am here to tell you, and all of the other ambitious women out there, that you can have it all, but you have to start with YOU.

As far as labels go, I am mother, wife, friend, sister, fitness model, a certified holistic nutritionist, empowerment coach and transformational speaker. But deep down, I am just like you- an ambitious woman wanting to have it all, knowing she can have it all, and living life on my own terms. I’d love for you to join me, are you ready?


Native to the Virginia Beach area, I grew up loving multiple forms of art. My passion is to serve the dreams of business owners/ non-profits, large or small, helping them create a world of visual identity; launching them into their business ventures, dreams and profits! Whether a small or large project Rev Creative is here to develop your ideas into a creative world of visual identity.

As a Mother of 3, military wife, and local gal, I know what it feels like to have a full plate with the burning desires to do what you were uniquely created for! I find the greatest joy in helping others figure out what their passions are and then guiding them through the process of materializing their dreams into reality!


After hitting rock bottom and failing at business, I knew the ability to persevere, reinvent and rise from the ashes WAS my skill. I had to share this with others so they knew they weren't alone in the beautiful chaos of being an womanpreneur. I wanted to help women avoid the pitfalls I encountered. I got tired of the boring networking events I attended and I knew we needed something more. I created the Girls on Fire Network for all women whether they are in their infancy as an entrpreneur or a seasoned veteran. We rise in confidence and resources. We soar in support and sisterhood. My hope is to empower women to daily with our signature coaching programs and membership. Let's create an inferno of success in life and business


Hi, I'm Chris Bartlett. I was born and raised here in Hampton Roads. I spent time in Texas and Alabama, but Coastal Virginia is without a doubt my home. A home I now share with my wife, Autumn and my son, James. Those that know me well, know that there's nothing I love more.

As someone who cherishes family, I wanted to capture all the moments and milestones of our life together. Days on the playground and trips to the zoo, holidays and birthdays and vacations too.

So, I got myself a camera.

I studied graphic design in college and have always had a passion for art. I love to draw and paint. When I first started in photography, the pictures were developed in the dark using tiny rolls of film. I never knew what I had until I developed my negatives. I never dreamed I'd be taking pictures of other people one day, but the more I continued to record my own life, the more others encouraged me to pursue my hobby.

So I did.

I'm confident that if you're reading this, you have family or people that you're close to and care about deeply. I'd be so honored if you'd let me chronicle your life's events. Whether it's a birthday, engagement, or just making time stand still so you'll always remember the way your little one looked on this day. Won't you let me help make a memory you'll cherish for a lifetime!? Contact me at
