The Founders of Rewired & Real

Kjersten and Stacy are the Founders of Rewired & Real, an Eau Claire nonprofit that works to change the conversation around mental health. Her story is unique in the sense that she is a stay-at-home mom creating a huge ripple of impact on mental health within the Chippewa Valley and beyond! Together they have impacted well over 30,000 individuals in numerous states directly through acts of kindness facilitated by the Rewired & Real Foundation.

With 5 boys in their household, these two parents realize that kindness, connection and conversation are at the forefront of healthy kiddos and adults. That is what fuels their desire to REWIRE how we all approach self-care and self-awareness, as well as physical and mental health to start real conversations create real impact. By filling our own cups, we can shine our light brighter in a world that is often dark at times by simply bringing who we are to the conversation. Connecting with ourselves allows us to positively change the world in REAL, authentic ways. & Real Foundation is a fiscal 501(c)(3) non-profit that is focused on providing initiatives, activities, and fundraisers that support the mental health and well-being of individuals in communities through kindness!

Grounded in our vision and principles that encourage individuals of all backgrounds to live life with empathy, awareness, self-love, a growth mindset, and always being mindful.

Never forgetting to..

  • Be You – Be true to yourself and what you stand for.

  • Be Real – Live an authentic life allowing yourself to step fully into your power.

  • Be Kind – Create positive impact within yourself, others and the world at large!

I believe that one individual who is determined to make a difference in the world, can, with desire, drive, dedication, discipline, passion, and persistence. The world can be altered and billions of people’s lives can be impacted positively in an unimaginable way.” ATGW

Our Mission

The Fierce Freedom Podcast aims to shine light on all aspects of modern-day slavery by sharing compelling conversations with individuals who are using their passions and talents to fight human trafficking and exploitation. By telling these stories, we hope to both educate listeners through spreading awareness and to inspire individuals to rise up and fight within their sphere of influence. 


Once you have confirmed the date and time that works with our producer, you will receive a calendar invite with a link to a Zoom meeting. If you need to change the date or time we ask you try to let us know 7 days ahead of scheduled recording. 

We typically ask guests to reserve an hour of recording time, please let us know if you need to leave early so we can be sure to adjust accordingly.

The recording will then be edited for clarity and timeliness and will typically air the following Tuesday at 5am CDT. If you’d like to listen to the recording in advance, please let our producer know by the Friday before the air date.

If there are any topics you’d prefer not to speak on please let our producer know, we are also happy to edit anything out in post-production. Recording style is relaxed and conversational. Even though this is a serious topic our goal is to present information in an accessible way to listeners, we like to end on a note of inspiration and hope whenever possible.

That being said, relax, be yourself, and as always thank you so much for sharing your time and talents with us!



"I believe that all jails desperately need your training as the victims of human trafficking frequently pass through the system. If staff is not trained on the warning signs of human trafficking and what the victims my look like, these are missed opportunities to provide help."

Captain Curt Dutton, Chippewa County Sheriff's Office

“Your agency is my greatest resource to share with anyone I talk to.”

Amy O’Donahue, Deputy, Specialized Enforcement, Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Officer Ashland and Bayfield County Sheriff’s Offices

"Human trafficking is a worldwide crisis. Everyone can do something. Stand against this egregious violation and maltreatment of our fellow brothers and sisters on this planet. Join Fierce Freedom and fight human trafficking at home and around the world!"


"Fierce Freedom is at the forefront of anti human trafficking! They are constantly working with the community to train, rescue, and bring awareness! If you're going to support an organization in your area, this is the one to partner with!"
