A member since 2014, Krista has always been willing to lend a hand where needed, introducing countless individuals to Women’s Network, and stepping up to the plate for a leadership role (most recently as our Chair Elect). She’s a light in Women’s Network, and a “must meet” if you’re new to the area or Women’s Network. Shoot her an email for coffee and she’ll welcome the invitation with open arms.

3 words people use to describe you: Leader, Inspiring, Consistent (my word for the year ;))
Favorite part about Women’s Network: Having lunch with all my friends over amazing food once a month. I love it sooo much I can’t stop inviting people and have at least one guest each luncheon. I feel like everyone should be part of this tribe that has introduced me to the most genuine people who have lead me to the leadership positions that I hold now!
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done? To say goodbye to our first dog Parker this September. Nobody tells you how long you grieve and how hard it is for your kids. It was my first pet as an adult that I had to make the decision to say goodbye.
If you could master one skill that you don’t have now, what would it be? Writing!!! I am not great at writing and would love to be better. Hopefully someone has edited this copy. I write how I speak and that’s not great for writing. (Don’t worry Krista, we did!)
Describe your ideal weekend. I love weekends at home where we wake up late and have waffles and mimosas for breakfast, do some yard work or work around the house. then grill out in the evening with a bonfire and have yummy drinks with friends. The next morning, we get up and attend church on Sunday and have lunch with friends or family. That is my ideal weekend and lately it’s been happening more often as we choose to stay home more.
Do you tend to live in the past, present or future? I tend to live in the future. I am the BIG dreamer and my husband Curt is in the details (present). I think that’s what makes us a great team!
