Khrys Vaughan, PMP, SCSP is a published Author, Catalyst, and Multi-passionate Strategist working with mission-driven womenpreneurs ready to answer ‘What’s next?’ and create a plan to get it. Her vision is for women to become everything they were created to be and step into their place. She utilizes business as the vehicle to do so; unlocking the solutions within them that our world needs.
Khrys has served on various boards/committees including SBA/Small Business Week-St. Louis, JCI International, Hampton Roads Civic Ballet, and Women Build/Habitat for Humanity. She previously produced an industry-first webcast, pilot for internet television, the Women in Green Technology panel (with Ingrid Vanderveldt among panelists), and a weekly radio show featuring diverse women in business that reached over 16,000 listens. Her first novel, The Red Umbrella Society, won second place in the Missouri Writing Guild’s Fall Fiction contest. And prompted her to create a unique literary group for women to write better fight scenes, and take their projects beyond the book. Recently, Khrys was selected to participate in Steve Madden’s/Fearless Fund Get Venture Ready program. And featured in Authority Magazine on why more women founders are needed.
On a personal note, Khrys is adventurous, vegan, and enjoys creating memories with her family.
