Christi Hegstad, PhD, PCC


Professionally, I am an Executive + Life Coach who specializes in helping you work with meaning, live with purpose, and achieve difference-making goals. I hold a PhD in Human Resource Development, am multi-certified in various coaching arenas, and am a widely published author + creator.

Personally, I am an overachiever, a total booknerd (I typically read around 100 books per year), and a mom to three incredible kiddos who inspire me daily. I am a planner, a journaler, and my favorite days are those with a healthy blend of productivity + peacefulness.

And for over 20 years, I have combined all of these qualities to run my coaching firm, MAP Professional Development Inc. I always say there’s a fine line – if a line exists at all – between personal and professional development, because nearly anything you do to grow yourself personally is going to support you at work, and vice-versa.

I believe in you and the difference you’re here to make! Contact me to chat about how we can partner together to help you work with meaning, live with purpose, and achieve bold + difference-making goals!
