Kristina grew up in Southern Vermont and graduated from Middlebury in 2015 with a major in Psychology and minor in Sociology. With passions for skiing and working with youth, she pursued an internship at Colorado-based youth development nonprofit SOS Outreach during her senior year J-Term that evolved into her first full-time job in education. Through this experience, Kristina further developed a deep commitment to breaking down barriers for youth and fostering opportunities for growth and exploration. After 5 years living and working in Colorado, she returned to Vermont and joined Middlebury’s Admissions Office in 2021 to help the next generation of students pursue their educational dreams. When she’s not on campus, Kristina enjoys nearly all forms of skiing, paddle boarding, camping, and hiking with her husband, family, and friends.
