About the Founder

Zhanna is a stellar example of the “don’t wait to create” message. She inspires women to embrace their dreams. She is an award-winning entrepreneur, master communicator with expertise in NLP. She is also a devoted mom. She didn’t wait to create The KidzUniverse with her two kids serving on her board of directors, every step of the way. Since 2003, her six figure company has helped children under 7 years of age and their families learn to love music and movement and connect, and in doing so, grow and become instruments for love, connection and peace.

Building on this entrepreneurial success, Zhanna’s lifelong passion and air for transformational speaking, success mindset mentoring, and performance unfolded naturally. Gracing the transformational stages of luminaries including Bill Baren and Raven The TalkShow Maven and others, Zhanna’s keynotes combine inspiring personal stories and heart-touching songs to create distinct, memorable, and life-changing workshop experiences. Her aim is to illuminate the creative spark within and to shine the light on every participant’s greatness. 



Zhanna Shpits is a performer, composer and inspirational speaker whose world is filled with music. Her mission is to bring melody and light into the hearts of everyone she touches. A Russian native, she now calls Northern California her home. Dividing her time between performing and teaching music to children, she is also an inspirational speaker. Combining her engaging musical performance with a unique and compelling gift for connecting with an audience, she delivers a positive message that is full of light, intended to lift the spirit while providing insight and inspiration.

Zhanna’s musical passion and her flair for performance is a natural gift, and her Keynote Musical Engagements combine compelling songs and inspiring personal stories for a live musical experience that is as unique as she is. Accompanying herself on the guitar, she brings an insightful perspective to life’s ups and downs. Sharing the successes and challenges that brought her to where she is in life, she connects to her audience from a creative place deep within her heart, shining a light on the most positive aspects of personal growth aimed at illuminating the creative spark within.
