About Kristin

Family

IMG_6390Kristin and her family have lived in the Rossborough neighborhood in southwest Fort Collins for 19 years. Kristin is a graduate of CSU, a mother of three and a long time leader in the Fort Collins volunteer community. Kristin has worked with our schools, city, and non-profits to improve the lives of families in Fort Collins.

Professionally, Kristin has extensive management experience in small and large retail business, with personal knowledge of meeting payrolls, controlling inventories, and the sales growth that it takes to create jobs. Her job and volunteer work today are focused on the administration of multi-million dollar budgets, and the accountability required in the successful application of those budgets. She knows what it takes to strengthen our economy and protect our quality of life.

Kristin and her family enjoy the Fort Collins Natural Areas near their southwest Fort Collins home, using the nearby trails for hiking and biking. They also do volunteer work as a family and have worked with many local non-profits including the Humane Society, Think Humanity and La Familia/The Family Center.
