Originally from a suburb of Cleveland, OH, Kristen spent time in Chicago, IL before trading snow for sun and relocating to Southwest Florida where she lives with her husband and two sons. When she’s not working to amplify communications and nonprofit best practices, you can find her cooking, shopping, or jogging with her dog.
Kristen's perfect day:
I’d start the day with a morning jog with my pup, Ginger, catching a beautiful sunrise. Relaxing by the pool with a book would be next on the list! While I like getting dressed up and attending galas or charity benefits, my happy place is home. As an enthusiastic cook, I’d host dinner for family and friends, and end the day sipping wine by our backyard fire pit. I love supporting others and I look forward to working with new clients to achieve their goals.
