Dr. Randall Kinnison


Dr. Randall Kinnison, aka Doctor Peace, founded Genesis Mediation in 2005. His mission was simple – create more peace in the lives of others every day. Since that beginning, Randy and the Genesis Team have created peace for thousands of people. While serving the seniors and their families, Randy developed a presentation called The Decision Tree of Aging. He always received requests for the book at the end of the presentation. Thus, Randy and team members Kim Christensen and Mark Duhrkoop, authored The Decision Tree of Aging. After serving families with aging parents, he knew there was more needed. He wanted to create a company that could serve families while they are serving their parents. Randy is currently serving his own mom with dementia in a foster care community, and his dad, who is living independently at 90 years of age.

As Doctor Peace, Randy’ vision is creating peace for over 2,000,000 by 2025. You can listen to him on The Doctor Peace Show. Randy brings over 35 years of experience in mediation, counseling, coaching, and consulting. With over 9,000 hours of mediation, Randy knows conflict and how to resolve it. He deeply understands the dynamics between families. Randy has trained his staff and expanded The Decision Tree of Aging to multiple locations and states. He is an author, trainer, speaker, and professor.
