Kristin has been serving the Junior League of Portland (JLP) since 2010. Over the past 8 years, she has held numerous board roles within the organization including President-Elect, VP of League Development, and VP of Membership. Prior to her 3 years on the League board, she served on the Strategic Fund Development Council, and as the Chair of the 1910 Campaign, JLP’s community development fund. Kristin started her League leadership career working with provisional members during their first year in the League.
Volunteering has always been a part of Kristin’s life, specifically supporting literacy projects for youth where she can share her love of reading. Before relocating to Portland, she served as a liaison for “Read Aloud”, a literacy program in the San Francisco public schools and volunteered bi-weekly with first graders in the Oakland Public School system working on reading and literacy proficiency. In addition to her work with the JLP she also serves on the Auction Gala Committee for the French American International School where her daughters are in Kindergarten and Grade Two.
Currently, a stay at home mom to her two young daughters, Kristin’s professional experience includes regional and national sales, management and sales training. She and her husband love to travel, and explore Portland’s restaurant scene. A California native, she now lives in the Alphabet District and enjoys learning more about non-profit management and the Portland community through her experience with the Junior League.
