I'm Kristi 


Hi there, I'm Kristi Spencer! I believe that etiquette is a powerful tool that helps us build relationships. I love sharing tips on how we can all use modern manners to make others feel cared for, respected, and empowered.

I spent many years as a television journalist, bringing the news of the day and sharing the stories of everyday heroes. There are so many amazing people out there making a difference in the world! I've also developed a passion for food writing and enjoy sharing my favorite recipes and reviewing local restaurants.


When I'm not working, I find joy in being a mother, daughter, aunt, and friend. Helping others develop and strengthen their relationships is important to me.


My favorite part of being an etiquette instructor is spreading kindness and positivity, one etiquette lesson at a time. So, feel free to reach out if you're interested in etiquette classes, have a dilemma, or just want to nerd out about etiquette!

Relationships over Rules

Etiquette is more than just following a list of rules. It's about using good manners to build relationships with others and treating them the way they want to be treated. When we're aware of our own actions and treat others with kindness, we can make a real difference!
