We exist to help medical professionals escape student loan overwhelm & build wealth.

Kristin Burton


Kristin Burton, MPAS, PA-C, CAQ-HM, CPAAPA is a practicing PA in pulmonary & critical care medicine. She is the founder of Strive Coaching, a company designed to promote financial literacy to medical professionals. Her own journey from $161,000 in student loan debt to millionaire at 31 is detailed here. She has previously been adjunct faculty at Franklin University PA Program, affiliate faculty at Butler University PA Program, and has served on the board of Indiana Academy for Physician Assistants. She is married to her high school sweetheart and is the proud mom of a toddler. When she's not helping medical professionals build wealth, she's traveling with her family and expanding her amateur sommelier knowledge through working towards a WSET Level 3 Certification (the wine won't taste itself!).
