Kristin relocated to Bellingham as a graduate of the University of California Santa Barbara in 2009. Her degree in History and interest in nonprofits led her to the Whatcom Museum where she served in multiple Development functions. While working there, she attended the University of Washington, completing a certification in Nonprofit Management. She previously worked as an Associate Director of Development at Mount Baker Theatre, and currently serves as Development Director at the Bellingham Food Bank.
Prior to its closing, Kristin served on the board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Washington, and she continues to meet with her Little Brother of the last 3 years regularly. As a board member of Blue Skies for Children, she hopes to help make many Little Wishes come true and attract more supporters to the wonderful and important work the organization has done for the last 17 years.
