Kristin joins Blue Beyond as an intern, supporting our consulting work. She has ten years of experience in the nonprofit sector, where she was a marketing technologist.
In this role, Kristin learned the importance of user experience and team leadership. Working on user experience improvements strengthened her listening skills and her ability to come up with creative solutions to remove pain points from any user journey. As a contributor and manager of a small team, Kristin learned that empowerment, communication, and growth are critical components of team success and that culture must be modeled by leaders.
Kristin is skilled in anticipating needs, synthesizing strategies across the creative and analytical, and pushing for much-needed change that brings all stakeholders along in the process.
She holds a B.A. in Art History, with a Minor in Anthropology — and is currently an MBA Candidate at USC’s Marshall School of Business. Kristin is involved in many business-focused school clubs such as: Marshall Net Impact, Graduate Marketing Association, and DEI Student Taskforce.
I have a strong background in fundraising, marketing, and relationship management, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion in hiring and team building. As a translator of information, either complex or technical, I can synthesize and present information in easy to understand terms. I have experience in leading content development, particularly training for technology, organization, and project management — and I’m always looking for ways to leverage tools and find new solutions.
Simply put: I love to help. Being in a position to solve a problem, large or small, that creates a positive outcome for others and allows them to work better…that is when I feel the most fulfilled.
I love Fall. The leaves changing, the temperature dropping, and the collective refocusing post-summer. Not to mention the holidays!
That everyone gets an equitable opportunity to thrive.
What is the goal? What is the outcome you’re envisioning?
As a SoCal native, when I moved to Seattle for my first role post-college, I learned that sunshine (especially in the morning) is really important to me!
Like most people, I would love to travel! Taking a long road trip across North America has always been a dream.
