Kristi Konieczny

Founder, The Spa Buzz + The Buzz Bus
Kristi ended up in Colorado over 7 years ago when she realized Summer in the Rocky Mountains has got to be a pretty close equivalent to Heaven. She has obtained degrees in Exercise Science and Wellness from both Ball State University in Muncie, IN and Miami University in Oxford, OH. She has been pursuing a path in wellness ever since. Having successfully created a business connecting spa professionals regionally and having crossed the mysterious 10-year mark with The Spa Buzz, Kristi decided it was time to take the message of healthy living on the road. In 2010 the idea for Buzz Bus Wellness Lifestyle Tour was born and launched like a rocket in March of 2011.

A few of her favorite things: Hiking anywhere, especially to the top of mountains, acupuncture, massage, tea, a great workout, reading thought provoking books, experiencing new things through travel and spending time with interesting people

Dislikes: Sitting still for too long, hidden agendas, dream squashers & naysayers, and packing peanuts

Places she can’t wait to see: Lake Tahoe, the Grand Canyon, and every natural hot spring on Earth

Favorite quotes: “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” ~ Steve Prefontaine

“Walk with the Dreamers, the Believers, the Courageous, the Cheerful, the Planners, the Doers, the Successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit light a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.” ~ Wilfred Peterson

Favorite Smells: Orange Blossoms – The outdoors in the Midwest during the Fall – Fresh cut grass
